Symptoms

On : 12.1.2 version, WIP Costing

Find that in a Standard costing Organization, when the creation and costing date of WIP Completion transactions are different and a cost update has happened for the assembly item during this time, the distributions generated for the completion transaction after the cost update are not correct. The wip_period_balances table and the mtl_transaction_accounts table show different values.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Expect distributions to be generated correctly.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create a new job and perform completion transaction but do not cost the transaction
2. Update the cost of the assembly item
3. Cost the transactions and view the distributions
