You observe that when performing a Putaway for a Standard Cost Item after having received it on a Purchase Order where you entered a cost different from the Standard Cost, you get Accounting Lines for the Transaction Group 020 (Putaway) as well as for the Transaction Group 400 (Std Cost Variance Receipts). This is ok so far.

When entering an Return to Vendor (RTV) however you observe the Accounting Lines for the following Transaction Groups:

012 (Return to Vendor) for the Standard Cost of the Item - this is ok
400 (Std Cost Variance Receipts) to back out PPV - this is ok

415 (RTV Variances) - This is wrong as an RTV Variance should not be created unless the refund from the RTV is DIFFERENT from the original Purchase Price. This should not even get created until the 'Landed Cost Extraction' process (LC_EXTRACT) processes the cost difference from AP. Furthermore, the extra 415 is 'stuck' as Pending Transaction and cannot be cleared.
