Transaction Code 87 is posted in TRAN_DATA based on total Purchase Order (PO) cost and not on PO unit cost. 

Steps to recreate:
1. Create a regular item with unit cost 10 USD and approve the item. Purchase VAT % is 10%.
2. Raise a PO for the regular item with 100 quantities ordered. On this PO, attach expenses (freight expense defined at supplier level) – 5 USD per unit. So the total ELC Cost = 1500 USD
3. Ship and receive the PO at the location and notice that the average cost is computed based on the incoming total PO cost i.e. 1500 USD
4. Notice the transaction postings in TRAN_DATA table
5. Transaction code 20 would be posted correctly based on total PO cost whereas the transaction code 87 would be posted on the VAT % of total PO cost (10% * 1500) and not on PO unit cost (10% * 1000).
