Issue:
While trying t o Copy Cost Plan , error message received as "A Submitted Budget already Exists". Scenario : We have a Cost Plan created and a Submitted Budget Plan. But the Budget Plan is not yet approved. 
Cause:
This is caused by Defect DE41768 which is currently under review.

STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Log into CA PPM and a create financially enabled project or use an existing one

2. Make sure there are some resources or add some to the project team

3. Create a Cost Plan

4. Populate the Cost Plan using the action 'New from Investment Team'

5. As this should be the Plan of Record use the Action Submit Plan of Record for Approval
  - Do not approve the Submitted Budget

6. Now select the action Copy Cost Plan

Expected result
The cost plan is copied

Actual Result
The cost plan does not get copied, it returns message, 'Error A submitted budget already exists.'
 
Resolution:
Resolution is in process.


Workaround: Use the New UX to copy Cost Plan or approve the Submitted Budget Plan.
