Last updated on JANUARY 30, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Project Planning and Control - Version 12.0.4 and later

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
     Before performing these steps, verify the Current Reporting Period covers the current date.
 1. Verify a task on the workplan has a physical % complete derivation method of  'cost' or 'effort'.
 2. Assign resources to the task with amounts.
 3. Publish the workplan.
 4. Enter actuals and run distribute cost processes 
     Enter a timecard against the task, run distribute labor, etc.,
 5. Run PRC: Update Project and Resource Base Summaries
 6. Run PRC: Update Project Performance Data
 7. Navigate to the workplan and view the task's schedule tab.
     Verify the earned value fields have  been populated.
 8. Navigate to the Financial tab, Percent Complete region
 9. Click 'Update Physical % Complete from Workplan' and click 'Save'
     this will  calculate and populate Earned value metric values.
10. Navigate to the Reporting Tab. Select View 'Task Summary' and click Go.
