We are comparing the Project ACWP value to the individual Task ACWP values. There is an inconsistency in some projects where the individual Task ACWP value is higher than the Project ACWP. We tried updating the values by executing the 'Update Earned Value' job and also by selecting all the Tasks and clicking the 'Update Costs' value. What could cause this discrepancy and how can we update the total ACWP for the project?
When you click the 'Update Costs' action for the selected Tasks you are executing the same code for the 'Update Earned Value' job. So both actions should update the ACWP at all levels of the Task Hierarchy. Examine the background log (BG-CA.LOG) file for error messages. If you see the following message, this indicates a broken link in the sequencing of the Task Hierarchy.
