If an employee changed organizations effective from 04-FEB-2019 for example and this salary basis element link is based on organization criteria .  When an assignment record was changed, a new Basic Salary element was created and also new proposal without any change in the salary, it end date the old proposal record and create new from 04-FEB-2019.  After this change, a retroactive change was made to the employee's grade step.  The old Basic Salary element was changed to reflect the new salary, but the new Basic Salary element was not updated with the correct salary amount. 

This caused February salary to be prorated and did not pay the full amount of expected salary for February.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps: Scenario:
1. Changed assignment organization effective 04-FEB-2019.  This end dated the Basic Salary element as of 03-FEB-2019 and created a new Basic Salary element with Monthly Salary value 16,210 (no change in the salary amount , but created new salary proposal).
2. Changed Grade Step increment for the assignment, effective 01-DEC-2019.  This changed the 'old' Basic Salary element monthly salary to 17,451, but did NOT change the 'new' Basic Salary monthly salary, which remained at 16,210.
3. Ran Retropay which correctly created retro entries for December and January
4. Ran Quick Pay and found February salary was prorated because 3 days were under the old element entry and 25 days were processed under the new element entry which has the old salary amount.  February should be paid for the full 28 days at the new rate.
