Trying to assign a BOQ item to a works order line results in message FRM-40200:Field is protected against update. Replication Steps: raise a works order, add a line, go to BOQ screen, double click in item code field results in error message above. No List of values appears.
The issue can occur if the user selects a work category that has a negative budget balance ( over budget ) and the user does not have the role OVER_BUDGET assigned. When trying to add a BOQ item to the work order line , no list of values displayed and the message FRM-40200:Field is protected against update is displayed.
Either add more budget so no longer negative balance ( Maintenance Manager, Financial, Budgets - query back appropriate item code against financial year and increase budget) or assign role OVER_BUDGET to the user (exor,security,users - query back username, check tab roles for OVER_BUDGET, if not assigned add it )
