Symptoms

Capital Asset Assignment Report overstates costs. Estimated Asset Cost and Asset Cost are shown at the asset level for all tasks even though the costs were only incurred for a single task. For example, task 801 has 5000 in cost, but there are 3 tasks associated with this asset:

1203
1503
801

each of these tasks have 5000 shown for them even though 5000 was only incurred against 801. The Report guide indicates:

"This report answers the following business questions:

What's the total cost of assets assigned at the project level?"

The report has a grand total which for this asset includes 15000 versus 5000 so the costs are way overstated.
