Symptoms


We are trying to hire a contingent worker (CWR).  We have termed the CWR in Job and now we're trying to hire them to be an employee via the page Workforce Administration > Personal Information > Organizational Relationships > New Employment Instance.  We enter all the data on the job data pages and then we hit save and we receive the error:

ERROR:
----------
"Data being added conflicts with existing data (18,2)".

The program is trying to insert a duplicate row in PS_TAX_DIST_EFFDT record.
