FMLANAME US_TAX_VERTEX

ORACLE_ERROR_TEXT
FORMULA_ERROR_TEXT A compiled version of the formula 6523 cannot be found. Check
that it exists and has been compiled before attempting to run it.

We tried compiling all the formulas by running the 'Bulk Compile Formulas' but the vertex formula did not compile successfully. Here's the error from the logs.

APP-FF-34004: Oracle Payroll:US_TAX_VERTEX:0001/01/01 FAILED
APP-FF-33005: The local variable LC_FEDERAL_TAX_RULES_ORG_FIT_EXEMPT_FROM_WAGE_ACCUM was used before being initialized
Cause: The variable named in the error message is being used before any value has been assigned to it, so it has no meaningful value.
Action: Please ensure variables have been assigned to before using them.

APP-FF-34004: Oracle Payroll:US_TAX_VERTEX_WORK:0001/01/01 FAILED
APP-FF-33065: Line 233: Only database items or input variables can be defaulted.
Cause: You have specified an item to be defaulted which is not a database item or an input variable.
Action: Use a database item or input variable in the default statement. If you want to change the value of a local variable, simply assign a value to it. You can change global variable values using the Manage Globals form.
