3215264 - How to remove and re-add the KUT extension from the service


You are trying to update multiple values in a KUT field via Data Workbench, but the task fails with the following error message: "Invalid code; maintain correct ABC code" (where ABC stands for the name of the KUT field).

You have maintained the multiple values of the multi-valued field within quotes — for example, "Z123,Z456" (where Z123 and Z456 stand for valid values for the field), but the error still raised.
