Symptoms

On ALM 8.0.2, when REPRICE_FREQ < PMT_FREQ and the ACCRUAL_BASIS_CD = 1 (30/360), it appears that the interest cash flow (FE 430) is not using the accrual_basis_cd 30/360. It instead appears to be using incorrectly ACT/365.

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
The FE 430 Interest Cash Flow is using ACT/365 for accrual for a daily repricing instrument that is has a monthly payment freq. Other instruments where REPRICE_FREQ = PMT_FREQ with accrual_basis_cd = 30/360 appear to use the correct accrual.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
Expect that the FE 430 Interest Cash Flow = Current Balance * Rate Per Payment:

In the "Rate Per Payment" calculation, use the ACCRUAL_BASIS_CD to adjust the annual current rate to reflect what the rate will be for one payment period.

Should not be using ACT/365 should be using 30/360 as it is the accrual on the record.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Load instrument record with ACCRUAL_BASIS_CD = 1 and REPRICE_FREQ < PMT_FREQ
2. Run ALM process and check the results.
