Error entering % complete vs actual effort

Hi,
Getting the following error Percent Complete cannont be 0 when actual effort > 0

Actual effort is 12 hours with estimated remaining effort at 132. I've tried putting various % completes in the field and continue to get the same error. Any ideas what's causing this?

Re: Error entering % complete vs actual effort

Not sure which version you are running, but prior to 7.1 sp8 there is a bug on the time sheet that requires you to move focus away from the % complete before it will accept the value.
