Changing the expected start date on a project with actuals
Our PPM allows users to enter project costs outside of the expected start and finish dates (might be Planned start/finish on the default request type) on their financial summary. What ends up happening is that the default project Costs portlet on the summary page shows only the costs within those dates, but the financial summary will show all costs regardless of date. When I try to change the Expected Start date so it will include those costs PPM won't let me because there are actuals. Does anyone by chance have a script or SQL to change the expected start date of a project? I have been told that it is not as simple as just changing the period id on the request row.
dirkf - this is one of those issues that gives me serious heartburn when I have to explain it to users. I'd take accurate and reliable over flexible any day. :-)
