This document discusses how to remove the special characters in a scorecard and retry the transfer of scorecards by the manager which are stuck in "In transfer" status.

Objectives in a scorecard are stored in the HR_API_TRANSACTION table as CLOB documents in an XML format.  Special characters have been introduced in the objectives when copied from sources like EXCEL, MS WORD , Power Point etc.

This causes the transfer of the scorecards to get stuck as the XML parser fails to read these special characters.

This document recommends the data fix script which can be run to remove the special characters from the CLOB document and retry the transfer of scorecards which were stuck.
