* Note:

   This is an error that can occur in any E-Business Suite form when a Descriptive Flexfield (DFF) has been defined with a Reference Field.

Having synchronized a Service Request from the Server to the mobile device, and then updating the SR on the PocketPC and attempt to re-synchronize upto the server, the Processes Uploaded Mobile Data concurrent program generates an error as a deferred transaction.
