Unable to edit lookup table with PWA using Project Server 2007 SP2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a new installation of Project Server 2207 with SP2. I can create a lookup table but I am unable to edit afterwards. This applies to the standard tables that are created as part of the install. Message is the lookup table could not be saved. An unknown error occurs. The tables will appear as being checked out but checking them in does not change the situation.

  • Hi local sme,

    have you check if "Manage Enterprise Custom Fields" permission is allow?

    Another thing to check, in my knowledge, if there are duplicate values in this table. In the past i get a similar error when i try to save a lookup table with duplicate values.

    I hope this help you,

  • Hi local sme,

    Have you by any chance installed Project Server 2007 on Windows Server 2008 R2?

    If so, disable dynamic content compression in IIS:

    1. Start -> Administrative Tools -> Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.
    2. In IIS Manager in the Connection Pane select your Server Name.
    3. In the Home pane, in the IIS section, click Compression.
    4. In the Compression section, deselect Enable dynamic content compression to disable it and click Apply
    5. Restart IIS (iisreset)

    More info about this problem can be found on Brian's blog:

    I hope this helps,
