Symptoms


In Release 12.0.4 and later, you are using Standard Cost Method in OPM, and are finding that
the WIP account does not appear to be getting cleared at Batch Closure time.  At least, when Create
Accounting is run it is posting a small amount (for example 0.01) to Batch Close Variance (CLS).

The Ingredient qty used on the Batch is the same as that specified in the Formula and a rounding
account is set up, however the Batch Journal entries do not show any amount posted to this account
and the difference is posted to Batch Close Variance.


Expectation is that there should be no posting to the CLS account as there is no variance in the
consumed ingredient qtys.


Due to this issue incorrect accounting is being generated, as the fractional amount should be posted to
the rounding account instead of the CLS account.
