Error in Execution: 'Active Buget not in scope'


There is a new field added to Migration Template called "Budget Category" on General tab. This field should only be used when Active Budget Control is scoped in the system.

This is a new feature and is a part of What's New as well for 2011.


We see that you are using the field "Budget Category" on the template without scoping in Active Budget in the system. Please empty the "Budget Category" column on the template and then proceed with migration.
