    <NikuDataBus xmlns:xsi="" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="../xsd/nikuxog_project.xsd">
    <Header version="12.0" action="write" objectType="project" externalSource="NIKU" />
    <Project fromTemplate="Test" projectID="123403269" name="Ability to Repay Alignment" start="2017-12-29T00:00:00" finish="2018-05-10T17:00:00" budgetCostStart="2017-12-29T00:00:00" budgetCostFinish="2018-05-10T17:00:00" plannedCostStart="2017-12-29T00:00:00" plannedCostFinish="2018-05-10T17:00:00" entityCode="Corporate"  >
    <ColumnValue name="client">1234 - Wash</ColumnValue>
    <ColumnValue name="finance">Testing</ColumnValue>
    <General addedBy="admin" addedDate="2018-03-26"/>

    The message is saying that a new record was created, that is no update.

    That suggest that the project ID and name were not correct.

    Read the project out to verify them.

    When I do updates  I just write the required fields and the field to updated.

    For project the required attributes in an update are


      <Project     projectID="zproject"     name="zproject">


    You can also leave

    " addedDate="2018-03-26"

    out as the system will generate that.
