2609963 - Pay component recurring upload error


When importing Pay component recurring, we get the error "payComponent abc is an invalid external code for Country xyz"


When pay components are added to a Rehire's record via Import, the above mentioned error message comes up referencing the country pertaining to the previous / old employment.

Eg. An Employee from USA has been terminated and was rehired in Peru. When you try to add Pay component(s) to this user's record, the error message still references the country USA

On the UI dropdown under Edit comp Info, Instead of Peru, the pay components pertaining to USA are displayed.
