Pre-Posting Allocation Tool (PAT) - Combo error for fields PROJECT_ID/ DEPTID in group PRJ_DEPT
Combo error for fields PROJECT_ID/ DEPTID in group PRJ_DEPT
This error can occur if the combination of the Department ID, fund, and Project ID you are attempting to use is not allowed to be used together. Basically, the Department ID you are trying to use is not allowed to encumber funds against the type of fund you are trying to use associated with the project ID that was entered. First verify that you have entered the Department ID, fund, and Project ID correctly.
If you are still having difficulty, contact your Dean's or Director's office to determine what Program codes are allowable with that Project ID. If you are at UW-Madison you may also contact Research and Sponsored Programs (RSP) for further assistance at 262-3822.
