Symptoms

On : 12.1.3 version, Actual Cost Process

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
Batch Close Variance is not being applied to correct period and Co-Product’s Cost

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Batch close variance should be applied to the newly added product's cost, not to the previous product that did not have transactions in the new period

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
In our PMAC environment, Org/Item Level $ reconciliation differences at month end does not tie to the BCV
General Scenario:

1) In period1 a batch is created, released and product1 is transacted (WIP Completion), and then
2) In period2, co-product (line2) product2 is added and is transacted (WIP Completion) and the batch is closed with a BCV

The BCV is then applied to Product1’s actual cost transactions in Period2 where as it should be applied to product2's cost in period2, when the batch was closed.

The logic for selecting the item to apply all of the BCV to its cost appears to be the product transacted first and should be the product transacted last.

Why is this occurring and what can we do to change it?
