Problem in Making Custom field to Multi Select..... Project Server 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I am trying to make my custom field to be able to store multiple values which uses Lookup table.

    When I change the Custom field to store multiple values, Queue Job is getting failed with the following message... any one has idea on how to solve this? [Strange part is that it is showing I am trying to modify multi-select to single select, but actually I was trying to do other way round.... ]

    Here is the Queus job fail detail..

    Please share your ideas on this...

  • Hello Muniappan,

    Actually you shouldn't be able to change from single value to multiple value.

    The reason is that Project Server stores the data in different structures inside the databases so they are not interchangeable states.

    You need to delete the field and create it again with multivalue setting on.
