Copying and Pasting of tasks by highlighting the entire task (supported in 15.7.1 and higher) is causing some tasks to be duplicated and others to be moved to the wrong place in the project in Microsoft Project (MSP).
Expected Results: Tasks appear in same structure as prior to step 9 (There are no duplicates and tasks haven’t moved unexpectedly to a different place in the project)
Actual Results: Some tasks have duplicates and others have moved to an incorrect place in the project.
Release : 15.7.1, 15.8, 15.8.1, 15.9, 15.9.1
Component : CA PPM MICROSOFT PROJECT (MSP)
This issue is caused by: DE58960
This issue is fixed in 15.9.1 patch 1 and 15.9.2.
Removing from the prdocument table can also help with unexpected issues such as the project not opening/hanging at opening to XML: See Remove a MSP project from the prdocument table for steps to do this.
To avoid this issue until you are able to upgrade to a version where this is fixed, it's recommended to have users use the pre 15.7.1 method of copying and pasting listed at: MSP Copying and Pasting Tasks - Supported Method for Clarity
Important: In order to see any Clarity MSP Interface fixes, after upgrading Clarity, the latest MSP Interface version will also need to be installed.
