Project window CSV import does not honor C_Project.ProjectLineLevel to expose C_ProjectLine>C_ProjectPhase_ID[Name] causing a import fail.

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Create a CSV file to import Project and Project Phase with Phaselines
2. AD_Org_ID[Name],Value/KT,Name,Description,IsActive,IsSummary,Note,ProjectLineLevel,C_Phase_ID[Name],DateContract,DateFinish,C_BPartner_ID[Value],C_BPartnerSR_ID[Value],C_BPartner_Location_ID[Name],AD_User_ID[Name],C_PaymentTerm_ID[Value],POReference,M_Warehouse_ID[Value],C_Campaign_ID[Value],M_PriceList_Version_ID[Name],C_Currency_ID,PlannedAmt,PlannedQty,PlannedMarginAmt,C_ProjectPhase>C_Project_ID[Value]/KT,C_ProjectPhase>SeqNo,C_ProjectPhase>Name,C_ProjectPhase>Description,C_ProjectLine>C_ProjectPhase_ID[Name]/K,C_ProjectLine>Line,C_ProjectLine>Description,C_ProjectLine>M_Product_ID[Value],C_ProjectLine>M_Product_Category_ID[Value],C_ProjectLine>PlannedPrice,C_ProjectLine>PlannedQty,C_ProjectLine>PlannedAmt
2. Select Import from Project window

What is the expected result?
Create Project, Phase, and Phase lines
Data was checked using import project then going to the phaselines and importing phaselines this worked but it is two imports.

What happens instead?
Error “C_ProjectLine>C_ProjectPhase_ID[Name]/K is not displayed”
With or with out the /K
it would seem that the import is not checking
C_Project.ProjectLineLevel value to expose C_ProjectLine>C_ProjectPhase_ID[Name]
Not tested but I would guess the same error will happen for project line level task.

Triaged by Andres Lopez

  1. Create a new project, set Line Level Phase

  2. Create phase

  3. Create phaseline

  4. Export CSV

The CSV file just export Master (Project) and Detail (Phase) records.

Not reproducible

Hi ,

So, can we close this ticket as resolved?

Reading the comment on GridTabCSVExporter.isExportableTab
> just export display tab, one level deep, not read only and not account tab

I think this is by design.

Andres Lopez Andrade, Thank you for taking the time to look into this issue for me.


This issue is when you try to IMPORT. The Export works.. but trying to create new records(alter the exported file to try to create a new project/phase.. the import expects a TASK.. and fails to import Phases
