1827184 - Overhead Distribution Run Distributes Cost Center Costs Incorrectly


You want to distribute only a certain amount of a cost center A to another cost center B. The remaining costs shall stay on cost center A.
Therefore you create a distribution rule for cost centers and maintain cost center A as sender cost center.
As receiver cost center you maintain a certain percentage for cost center B and for the rest you maintain cost center A also as receiver (i.e. 30% cost center B, 70% cost center A).
After executing the Overhead Distribution Run you notice that the run distributed the costs of your sender cost center A incorrectly:

  • The total distribution amount  is much higher than the cost amount of your sender cost center
  • The run distributed 100% of the sender cost center A to receiver cost center B, instead of just a certain percentage (i.e. 30%)
  • The run distributed another amount (higher than the total cost amount of the sender cost center A) to and from the sender cost center A
