Hi @pleong ,

 

You are trying to add a new budget row below the cost center, you need to select a cost center before running the create action(Add Budget row) and this is mandatory, we need to tell the system under which cost center we are adding this new row. 

So first select the cost center and click the Add budget row button.

 

Why in your DB view you are not seeing any cost center?

I did select a cost center. That is always the first thing that I do.

Hi @pleong 

 

Can you check the list " #Cost Center > General Sub Cat" , it seems it doesn't contain any item inside that that's why you are getting error.

" Add Budget line" was created through "Create" action. I am tried to replicate your problem even i am getting same error once i have deleted every item from the parent list.

Now go to action -> search "add budget line" -> edit -> check the list name and trace the parent of that list.

I don't think I have that kind of access.. I'm a user not an admin or anyone who has access to make or change those types of items.

@pleong Pls make sure you have selected the cost center not the roll-up of the cost center. Create action will not work if you select other levels and will get this error only. Check again the cost center selection.

I am not selecting the roll-up. I have already selected the cost center.

Hi @pleong 

 

As you told me you are a user, don't have admin access then I am assuming this list may have selective access enabled then two possible case are

 1. you don't have access to the cost center the also you will get the same error

2.  If you have " Read Access" also then also you will not able to add any item in the list and will get same error.

 

Hope this helps

Thanks
