Changing a custom field: changing 'calculation for assignment rows' RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear all,

    I want to change a custom field setting, but I keep getting the error below.

    The custom field could not be saved due to the following reason(s): 

    "The selected custom field is currently part of one or more Project Server OLAP cubes and the change requested is not supported by the cubes. Select a valid setting or remove the custom field from the OLAP database(s)."

    I want to change the setting of the 'calculation for assignment rows' from none to roll down unless manually specified. But the error above came up.

    I since have removed this field from every cube we have on the server. I have even deleted all the cubes and rebuild them without the field in it, but still no success. I want to change this field so I can use the values entered in project in an excel pivot table (connected to the cubes).

    We are working with project server 2010.

    Hope somebody can help me.

    All the best,


    Kind regards, Bert
