Agresso - Illegal Value for Department Error Project Master File
The symptoms of the problem
When opening any project in the Project Master File (PMF), users encounter the error message "Illegal value [xxx] for Department" where the value associated with the Project is specified where the brackets are indicated (see figure 1).

In addition to this error message, when a user attempts to select a valid Department value from the drop down menu in the Department field in the PMF, no Department values are available (figure 2).

The cause of this problem is that a change has been made in the Company Information screen, but when the administrative user saved, the value in the current period field in tab 3 – Setup was saved as 0 (figure 3).
