Quick Pay or Payroll run errors for some assignments if the employee was paid a Quick Pay payment in a prior pay period after the regular payroll was run. Retropay creates a positive and a negative element entry in the current period for the prior period's supplemental payment and is causing the employees' run to complete in error.

ERROR: Assignment has Negative Net Salary for Date Earned MM-DDD-YYYY
In { pyxipmt
message text = ERROR: Assignment has Negative Net Salary for Date Earned MM-DDD-YYYY

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Run regular payroll for period 1
2. Pay an assignment a supplemental payment via Quick Pay for period 1, paid on current check date.
3. Run Retropay for period 2 and see a negative and positive retro entry for the supplemental payment from period 1
4. Run Quick Pay or Payroll process and get error
