Information in this document applies to any platform.


When attempting to load new workers data (including AssignmentSupervisor data), the following error occurs.

You must enter a valid value for the ManagerId field.


This is a scenario where both Supervisor and the Person are hired at same time and loaded in the same dat file.

If S1 is supervisor for W1, and S1 and W1 are hired simultaneously in the same file.
Then if Supervisor information is given in the same Worker.dat file, the load is failing with error - "You must enter a valid value for the ManagerId field."
