When you use Microsoft Project Web Access to submit an update to a task (such as your timesheet) for your Microsoft Office Project Server 2003 project plan to your project manager, you receive one of the following error messages:
Error: 'document.frames.idExecASP.document.all.nErr.value' is null or not an object
Error: Permission Denied
This problem may occur if the update runs a stored procedure that takes a longer than expected to complete so that Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) times out before receiving a response from the SQL server.
For example, this problem may occur if tasks in your project plan span almost a year in duration. Therefore, the SQL query that occurs can take longer than expected to complete when lots of data is processed.
