Goal


We are trying to implement 'Dynamic Cost Allocation' for Batches so that
the percentage of costs allocated to each Product Item reflects the
Actual Yield.

Currently, even though the Cost Allocation percentages on the Batch itself
do seem to be recalculated as expected when the Batch is Closed, Actual Costing
ignores these values and still uses the percentages which were put in place when
the Batch was initially Released.

We suspect that this is because of the 'Layers' costing logic introduced
to handle Batches which span more than one Period.

We also tried switching off the dynamic calculation and working out the
Allocation Percentages manually.  However even though we updated the Batch
with these figures, Actual Costing still used the original percentages
copied in from the Production Formula.

How can we make Actual Costing use the Cost Allocation Percentages which
were calculated dynamically or updated manually?
