2408869 - The Report Project Variance by Project Structure Doesn't Show Any Data

Symptom

The report Project Variance by Project Structure is not showing any data in a certain Project Baseline, but with other baseline the report show the data correctly.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Project Management Work Center.
  2. Reports View > List Subview. 
  3. Search for report Project Variance by Project Structure.
  4. Click the report name.
  5. Fill all mandatory fields and enter a Baseline.
  6. Press Go button.

The system throws the message No report data available to display; check the selection.

Cause

The report is not showing any data because the Project Baseline used is Obsolete in the system. Only one baseline can be active for a project. Once activated a baseline, the previous one automatically goes obsolete. Hence, this report will have no data to show anymore.

Resolution

  1.  Go to the Project Management Work Center
  2. Change Management view > Baselines subview
  3. Search for the Project and check if the baseline is active as the report only shows data for active baselines:
  4. If it is not: you must use the active baseline for that project, since it is not possible to reactivate a baseline once it was set to Obsolete.
  5. If it is Active, open an incident for SAP Cloud Support.
