When attempting to overwrite a local MSP (Microsoft Project) project to an existing project in Clarity PPM in the MSP New Driver, receive a Project Save failed error.

In the app-ca.log, a warning message references "Referenced Project record (UID=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx) does not exist"

Tip: To get to the app-ca.logs, see the following KB that will walk both On Premise and SaaS customers on steps to retrieve the log: KB000113183
Ensure the Text3 data for the project summary task for the local project matches that of the project in PPM. See KB000100168 for the steps on how to do this.
