When trying to upload absence elements using BEE, getting the following error:

ERROR
-----------------------
Element L Paid Parental Leave has been assigned to multiple element types

That is due to the same element being used in multiple absence types BUT only one of those is active - the other one is end dated.

Example:

Both absence types:

- Paid Parental Leave T/S NEW
- Paid Parental Leave Timesheet (Effective 1-JUL-2006 to 30-JUN-2015 )

are tied to element 'L Paid Parental Leave'


STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Set up leave element
2. Create two Absence Types and both associated with the same element.
3. End date one of the absence types.
4. Create a BEE batch for leave element with effective date that is after one of the absence types was end-dated.
