When attempting to run an Allocation using Static Table Driver that uses a Hierarchy and source Ledger Stat, the results of the calculation is multiplied by the number of leaf in the node specified in the hierarchy.


1. Create Static Table Driver Allocation with Ledger Stat as the Source and Output on Ledger Stat.
For example:
Org           Amount
5014032          600
5014036        4200

2. Create Static Table Driver and use Org Hierarchy and specified coefficient at the node level.
In example below, the node has 8 leaves and coefficient specified is 2 at East Region level.

East Region - 1000002
  5014032 -- match source
  5014036 -- match source

3. Results in Ledger Stat shows:
Org            Amount  
5014032         9600  (600x2x8)
5014036       67200 (4200x2x8)
