Cannot convert a Project to a Program if it is financially enabled

Hi,

I am facing a weird problem. I have an existing PROGRAM in system which I am XOGin back in clarity with just the Name and ID, but it is throwing an error with -

ERROR MESSAGE : - "Cannot convert a Project to a Program if it is financially enabled or if it contains Tasks"

The input XML is -

<NikuDataBus>
<Header objectType="project" action="write" externalSource="NIKU" version="8.1"/>
<Projects>
<Project program="true" projectID="123" name="XYZ">
</Project>
</Projects>
</NikuDataBus>

I am on Clarity 12.0.5, verified that this Program does NOT have any tasks (Only Subprojects) AND also it is NOT Financially Enabled.

One interesting part is when I remove program="true" condition, it is getting XOGged successfully. However, with program="true", it is failing while this '123' is already a Program.

No clue why am getting the error.

Can somebody please help ?

Thanks,
Rahul
