Duplicate projects appear in Microsoft Project Web Access, or you cannot generate OLAP cubes in Project Server 2002

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
After you start Microsoft Project Web Access and then click Project, existing projects may appear to be duplicated. Additionally, when you create an OLAP cube, an error message is displayed under the Current Cube Status section of the Update resources tables and OLAP cube page. The error message is as follows:
error 457 This key is associated with an element of this collection
This symptom may occur if you use the Save As command on an enterprise project to save it in a non-connected format such as mdb, xls, or txt, and then republish the project. A duplicate entry for that project is created in the MSP_WEB_PROJECTS table, causing the project to appear two times. However, the project appears with each use of the Save As command.
