  • These objects should not be present in Corporate datamodel anymore.


  1. Please remove the following MDF Foundation Objects from the Corporate Data Model - JobCode, JobClassLocal, JobFunction, PayGroup & PayCalendar.
  2. Re-import the corrected data model, wait for few minutes and then login and check by creating the AdHoc reports for Foundation Objects.
