PCA distribution cycle Process

Hi all,

we have an issue where when we ran the Product cost collector and captured the production overhead. it posted the values on the co side like.

a credit amt to the Corp CC and a Debit to the Plant CC where the production happened. now when they are running a P&L (report writer report) based on Profit center there are credit values on the corp PC and the user doesnt want those credit amounts to show up on the CORP PC and he wants us to send them back to the Plant CC

so that it will be a NET ZERO. on both the PC's at plant level and CORP level.

i am trying to create Distribution cycle as the cost elements are not the Assessment type but created as a Overhead type 42.

here is the cycle info..

Kindly check Senders/Receivers Tab once, also check proper receivers are maintained or not.
