When you select a cost category ID in the Cost Category ID list for a timesheet in Personal Data Keeper (PDK) in Microsoft Dynamics GP 9.0 or in Microsoft Business Solutions-Great Plains 8.0, you receive the following error message:
The default Unit of Measure is not part of the schedule.
This error message is incorrect. In this scenario, you expect to receive the following error message:
This pay code is not valid for this employee ID.
This problem occurs if the following conditions are true:
The Default Pay Code field is left blank in the PA Employee Options window.
The cost category for which you are entering the time has a default pay code selected.
To work around this problem, follow these steps:
On the Cards menu, point to Payroll, and then click Employee.
Select the employee for which you are entering the timesheet.
In the PA Employee Options window, enter a pay code in the Default Pay Code field.
Save the employee record.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
