Reproducing the Issue

1. Go to Position Org Chart

2. Click edit on a position or click manage > Make Correction or insert new record



1. Manage Data > Position

2. Search for a position

3. Insert new record or edit existing record



An association on the cost center object had been deleted but the field criteria from it had not been removed from the field on the position object


Remove the field criteria from the field and save


Note: This is not specific to the position object, it happens across MDF objects

When deleting an association, always delete the associated field criteria as well
