I am currently experiencing some unexpected behavior when I try to export employees from Siebel in the following manner:

Go to the Administration > User screen.
In the Employees view - Employee List View, go to Menu>Export.
Choose All in the Columns to Export option.
The following error occurs:

We detected an Error which may have occurred for one or more of the following reasons:

Field 'Contact Last Name' does not exist in definition for business component 'Employee'. Please ask your systems administrator to check your application configuration.(SBL-DAT-00398)

Please note this error does not occur when we use the Visible Columns in the Columns to Export and we are currently using this as a work around. I have been able to reproduce this in vanilla and suspect it is a product defect.
