  2. Create a record/new frequency in 'Manage Organization, Pay and Job Structures' page by providing some value for 'payFrequency' field.
  3. Configuration Transport Centre, try to transport Frequency from source to target instance and the transport fails.The downloading of this record using configuration center tool also fails.
