Symptoms

When using the Even Spread- Spread option on the Adjust Budget Periods Page, the adjustment amount is not divided across periods correctly. If there are more than 12 budget periods and the Even Spread distribution option is selected, the budget adjustment amount is divided by 12 and then that amount is distributed to each period even though there are more than 12 periods.

This works fine on the project budget details page.

The adjustment amount should be divided by the number of budget periods as happens when using the even distribution option on the Project Budget Details page.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Select a project budget with more than 12 periods, for example 18.
2. Drill down on the budget detail page and then on the "Other" link to open the Budget Period Adjustments Page.
3. Select the even spread distribution option and enter a budget adjustment amount, for example 18,000
4. Distribute the adjustment - it will divide the adjustment amount by 12 and distribute that amount to every period which will increase the total budget by more than the adjustment amount entered.

Due to this issue, budget amounts may be overstated.
