E-Rec - java.lang.NullPointerException when creating a VacancyReq thru MSS


While i try attempting to create a vacancy requisition thru MSS using start method, "Previous Request", i get to see an "java.lang.NullPointerException" internal server- error in the portal.

When i checked the error log in the backend in ST22, i see the error description given below,

You attempted to use a 'NULL' object reference (points to 'nothing')

access a component (variable: " ").

An object reference must point to an object (an instance of a class)

before it can be used to access components.

Either the reference was never set or it was set to 'NULL' using the

CLEAR statement.

When there are many previous requisitions (previously raised) available for the Manager I.D iam testing, iam not sure why this error is showing up,

Has any one faced this issue before? can some one give any clues on the issue iam facing.

Info - I have hidden 2 other start methods available in standard thru configuration (Job & No Reference) from the manager grouping. But i have thorougly checked the configuration and there doesnt seem to be a problem with the configuration as such.
