  2. Go to Opportunities view
  3. Select show all and find for opportunity ABC (ABC represents the name of the opportunity)
  4. Open the Opportunity ABC
  5. Select the field Custom Status and change the value (as an example, do it from Open to In process)
  6. Select Save

You will see the afore mentioned error and also notice that the value (In Process, in this case) saved in no longer available.


You have not maintained the Custom Status Code, against the status.

1. Go to Business Configuration workcenter
2. Go to Overview
