  1. You can add up to a maximum of 10 tabular entries for each record.
  2. Use CDATA while sending data to recruit if the content contains any special characters to avoid failure of the add/update operation due to XML parsing error
  3. The addTabularRecords API overwrites any existing tabular data that the record contains.
  4. To add two or more values to multi picklist fields, use semicolon (;) as the separator.
