Issues that this hotfix package fixes
This hotfix fixes the following issues that were not previously documented in a Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
When you import timesheets on the My Tasks page in Microsoft Office Project Web Access (PWA), time is not always imported correctly. This issue may occur when timesheets are re-imported or when overtime hours are recorded.
If the site regional setting is Danish or Norwegian, you may receive the following error message when you save a lookup table:
After you apply Project Server 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1), the timesheet does not show the same column width on the My Timesheet page as before. Therefore, it is difficult or impossible for you to read the column header information.
When you add resource custom fields to a timesheet view, the timesheet view is displayed correctly. However, when you add values for the custom fields, and then save or submit the timesheet, the values are not saved.
The task updates may fail if a calendar error occurs during check-in.
Consider the following scenario. You create a Project-level custom field that uses a formula, and the formula contains more than two other custom fields. Then, you change the values of the custom fields in PWA. In this scenario, the Project-level custom field becomes blank when you publish the changes in PWA.
Note This issue only occurs if a language pack is applied together with Project Server 2007.
The Progress field in the My Tasks view is not calculated correctly if the calendar does not use eight hours per day.
If you try to approve several timesheets at the same time, only the first timesheet is approved.
You successfully performed a restore of a farm to a different computer. However, when you try to visit the PWA site, you receive the following error message:
File not found
When you save and publish a project plan in PWA, the custom fields that use formulas are not recalculated.
On the Project Center page, a value is displayed in the Work column for a cost resource when there is no work for this kind of resource.
Summary resource assignments values may not match those under Other Projects and Commitments in the Resource Usage view.
When a resource tries to import a timesheet into My Tasks, the import page only refreshes. The import page does not import the timesheet if the resource is not the assignment owner of the activity plan.
Note The assignment owner cannot be changed for tasks that are first assigned to one resource, and then reassigned to the second resource.
When you edit a status report, you may receive the following message:
The specified start date occurs in the past. Specify a new start date that is not earlier than today.
Therefore, the start date of the report must be changed.
If you try to preview or accept more than approximately 54 tasks on the Task Updates page at the same time, the Task Updates page stops responding, returns no data, or you receive the following error message:
An unexpected error has occurred.
On the Close Tasks to Update page, you cannot publish a task that has only cost resources assigned. The task is not closed to updates.
Note This issue occurs for both local cost resources and enterprise cost resources.
When you create a timesheet, you may receive the following error message:
Note This issue occurs if the site regional setting is Norwegian and the project is created by using the Norwegian version of Microsoft Office Project Professional 2007.
Gantt bars are not displayed in the Project Center view for custom durations.
You may experience the following symptoms:
Resource Center takes a long time to load if there are many resources.
The Task Updates page takes a long time to load if tasks have long durations.
After a resource updates a task, the updated actual billable work is not in the MSP_Project_Timesheet cube.
When you try to import timesheets on the Import Timesheet page, the import fails. Additionally, the following error is logged in the Unified Logging Service (ULS) log:
PSError: GeneralUnhandledException Undefined attributes list: System.ArgumentException: Statusing - Cannot create new Saved Task for resource's task
After you save and publish a project plan in PWA, any calculated task custom field that uses the WBS column is empty.
If an issue, risk, or deliverable is assigned to a Windows user before the Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) synchronization process, there may be a mismatch with the Windows account in the resource pool.
After you apply the Project Server 2007 Infrastructure Update, the schedule Web part does not work correctly.
Custom fields together with formulas are not available in the My Assignments view.
After you install hotfix 956061, Project Center times out.
