Last updated on SEPTEMBER 12, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Fusion Project Control Cloud Service - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The customer has tested creating a forecast through generation and through copying. When the forecast is generated and the costs are downloaded to excel, the costs can be seen, but when the forecast is copied and downloaded, the costs cannot be seen. The same project plan type is used in each and issue occurs whether periodic or non periodic format.

The documentation states:

Generating Budget or Forecast Versions

You can generate budget or forecast versions based on other financial plans or from the project plan. During generation, quantity from the source plan and rates derived from the target financial plan type planning options are used to calculate amounts for the new version. The planning resource breakdown structure is the only planning option that is inherited from the source. You can't edit the planning resource breakdown structure.

Copying Budget or Forecast Amounts

You can create a version by copying another financial plan. Copy plan values without change, or specify a positive or negative percentage by which to adjust amounts before the new version is created.

The copied version inherits planning options from the source financial plan. You can't edit planning options for the new version during initial creation.


In neither case does it look as though the planning RBS has been changed thus no difference would be expected.

The costs appear in the UI for the forecast before exporting to excel. This is an issue for all users and on all projects.
