When a project is saved back from MSP to PPM, when a task is fixed duration and the assignments within the same task are distributed on different time frames, expense and material resource get ETC doubled on the first day.

2. Assign 2 Material or Expense resources to the task, res1 and res2 with loading pattern = Uniform
3. Set 2000 hours ETC for the current month for res1
4. Set 2000 hours ETC for next month for res2
5. Open the project in MSP
 
Expected Results: res1 has all ETC distributed along the current month, and res2 has all the ETC distributed along the next month

 

Actual Results: res1 has all ETC distributed along the current month, and res2 has all the ETC distributed along the next month + 2000 hours the first day of the task
