Issue:

When you have a project in CA PPM with dependencies and you export that info to Microsoft(R) Project, it only shows 'Finish-Finish' dependencies in the Predecessors column, all other dependencies disappear. This is happening in non-English language versions of MSP.

 

Steps to reproduce

  1. Use the New driver for the Microsoft Project integration and a non-English MSP
  2. In PPM, go to Home > Projects
  3. Create a new project with at least three tasks
  4. Setup a task dependency of 'Finish-Start' and then one task dependency relationship of 'Finish-Finish'

Expected result: MSP shows all dependencies in Predecessors column

Actual result: MSP only shows 'Finish-Finish' dependencies in Predecessors column

Environment:
This has been reported in 14.3, 14.4 and 15.1 (base versions, no patches).
Cause:

Resolution:

This issue has been fixed in:

  • CA PPM 15.2
