Cause: The issue occurs due to the value added for the custom field “State” in migrated environment from Project Server 2007.

Resolution:

To avoid the issue on the new project,

1.    Open the Enterprise Custom Fields and Lookup Tables à Click on “State” field

2.    Remove the check box “Choose a value to use as a default when adding new items”

To resolve the issue with the existing projects,

Need to remove the MD_PROP_ID='190873600' value for the projects from the table draft.MSP_PROJ_CUSTOM_FIELD_VALUES.

Note: Open support ticket with Microsoft to remove the values from the table.
