Symptoms

When a product is defined as a Cycle Arrear (CA) by mistake and later changed to Cycle Forward (CF), the bill was not generated for the cycle when the product change is performed.

Steps To Reproduce:

Date in mm/dd/yy format.

  1.  08/01/08: Create an account, purchase a monthly CA product
  2.  09/01/08: Bill the account
  3.  09/10/08: In the middle of the current cycle, change the event in the product from CA to CF in Pricing.
  4.  09/10/08: Restart the processes
  5.  10/01/08: Bill the account


Observed that there was not a bill corresponding to the cycle when the product change was made. In the above example, the following charges are missing:
9/1 - 9/10: CA charge
9/10 - 10/1: CF charge

Many accounts have purchased this CA product. The user cannot cancel the CA product and purchase another CF product for each account. Need a solution for this problem.
