When Inventory Accounting Period closes, the period close variance is created for cancelled non standard discrete jobs.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Create a non-standard discrete job.
    WIP(N) > Discrete > Discrete jobs > New(B)
  2. Change the status to cancel this job.
  3. Save your change.
  4. Navigate to Inventory Accounting Period form.
    Inventory(N) > Accounting Close Cycle > Inventory Accounting Period
  5. Close Inventory Accounting Period which includes above job.
    Change status(B) > Closed
  6. Confirm the period close variance for the job.
    WIP(N) > Discrete > WIP Value Summary
