2871258 - The Production Lots - Overhead Absorption Run Does Not Calculate Reversals


You reversed the internal service confirmation AA(AA represents the ID of the internal service confirmation) of production lot BB(BB represents the ID of the production lot) during the accouting period MMM.YYYY(MMM represents the accounting period, YYYY represents the fiscal year). Then you execute production lot - overhead absorption on product lot BB during MMM.YYYY, but the overhead amount is zero.

You checked the overhead rule and posted G/L account, and there are no problems.

  4. Select Run ID XYZ(XYZ represents the ID of the production lots - overhead absorption run) and click on Log Result.
  5. View Processed Successfully tab.
