    Analytics Evidence CUSA2 - Report Data From Non-Canned Reports Not Correct

    Fiscal Year Reports provide incorrect pulls for both Usage and Calculations when using cost per use analysis.

    status: open
    priority: high
    subject area: cost usage

    Refer to Sales Force Case# 00472742.

    Data information is inaccurate on 2 points:

    • When Pulling Usage - Usage numbers in a Cost Per Use Analysis do not match Counter loaded data. When you run a Counter report for the same period of time as a Cost Per Use report, the data does not correlate. From where does the Cost Per Use Analysis pull its usage data?
    • Mathematical Computations of Cost Per Use are often inaccurate.  What is the process by which the Cost Per Use Mathematical computations is obtained? The math from either the Cost Per Use Usage or Counter Usage is not correct.  For example (below example is not real. Case includes real example):
      • Journal A Cost $1,000.00
      • Usage numbers of Cost per Use show 10 Uses using a Fiscal Year Limiter
      • Counter Report shows 30 Uses using same date limiter
      • Cost Per Use shows $40.00
