Actuals on Task level not matching Posted transaction review.

  • 1.  Actuals on Task level not matching Posted transaction review.

    On a random project I see that actuals column on a Task is not matching with the Posted transaction portlet for the same dates.

    Please advise.

    There could be various reasons for this.
    The Assignment Actual Hours should match if you have posted all transactions through to WIP.
    The Assignment Costs 'may not' match due to the way the rate matrix is defined.
    Some of the columns such as the Resource's Input Type Code on the Rate Matrix are not used at the time the Timesheet entries are posted to the project, but are picked up when the transaction is actually posted into WIP.
    Be sure that the rates and costs are extracted before posting any timesheets.
    Check that all transactions have been posted into WIP.
    If the transactions originated through Timesheets, best practice is to make adjustments on timesheets and post through to WIP.
    However, if you do make adjustments to WIP, be sure the changes to the financial transactions are imported back into the project.

    We have several KBs that talk about these types of things that can help you to determine what step was missed in posting the actuals.
