The concurrent program “Receipt Accruals - Period-End” misses accruing closed shipments and sometimes generates accrual amounts higher than expected.

Here are the different case scenarios:

Case 1: Shipments with a closing date. “Receipt Accruals - Period-End” ignores all shipments that have a closing date less than the end date of the Period parameter.

Note that invoices can be created and matched to closed shipments which have quantities received greater than quantities invoiced.

Case 2: The “Receipt Accruals - Period-End” process generates events in the table RCV_ACCOUNTING_EVENTS even if the unit price is 0.
After executing “Create accounting” many journal entries exist with 0 amounts, adding no value.

Case 3: Some Purchase Order (PO) Distributions are accrued even if the quantity delivered is identical to the quantity billed.

Case 4: In some cases, the accrued amount is greater than what is expected. Oracle generates higher amounts than what is expected.

Steps to Replicate:
1. Run Receipt Accruals - Period End
2. Run Create Accounting - Cost Management

Many POs are not accrued and some POs are accrued with incorrect amounts.
