PPM Support Tip: 5 Field limit for Cost Details Line User Data and Benefit Line User Data

A new KCS article was published: KM00448928


Only 5 User Data Fields for a Cost Details Line are displayed in the Financial Summary. Only 5 User Data Fields for a Benefit Line as well. Workbench allows up to twenty User Data Fields.  

HP Portfolio Management Configuration Guide states:

"Configuring User Data

In the User Data Workbench, you can add up to twenty entries of Forecast Line User Data for cost forecasts or up to twenty entries of Benefit Line User Data for financial benefits. Then, users can (or must) specify this user data to characterize the lines in more detail than the default line fields described in the HP Financial Management User’s Guide. Only the five user data lines with the lowest numbers you define and enable among USER_DATA1 through USER_DATA20 can appear as columns in the Forecast and Actual Details or Benefit Details section of financial summaries. For example, if only USER_DATA1 and USER_DATA4 are disabled, then USER_DATA2, USER_DATA3, USER_DATA5, USER_DATA6, and USER_DATA7 appear, if defined."
