Just a quick one, sorry if I have missed this while searching the threads
Under what conditions would the actual cost (on cost plan) show up as negative ?
You would need to get the WIP records to find out the origin of the negative actual cost, it must have come from a negative rate or quantity.
I checked the below thread -
I had asked the same when the user had asked about the "there is no value for CPI displayed if the ACWP is negative"
Is there any other way that this can happen ? (Apart from negative transaction entry)
Actuals and actual cost in CP comes from ppa_wip and ppa_wip_values so as you have rightly mentioned, a negative transaction entry can bring in a negative amount in CP.
Wip adjustment or timesheet adjustment could be a potential scenario for negative amounts in CP but I cannot confirm this without testing it.
Thanks for your input, Jerin
"Wip adjustment or timesheet adjustment could be a potential scenario for negative amounts in CP but I cannot confirm this without testing it"
WIP Adjustment might be a more potential scenario than a timesheet adjustment (you cannot enter negative hours in the timesheet)
As of now, I do not have the required privileges to check for "WIP Adjustment", would be great if you could confirm.
Thanks again for the input
Thanks Jerin / Connie
I will check on this
