    In RA you can set up Reserves for Imminent Loss (Rp<Cp). Make sure you limit recognized revenue to no more then 100% of Rp.

    Hello Ken,

    Thank you!!!

    I am learning this process in project system, I have below scenario:

    Estimated Rev = $ 61,250

    Estimated Cost = $ 49,000

    Profit = $ 12,250

    The first month below are the actuals

    Billing = $ 10,000

    Cost = $ 7,500

    Based on above figures system calculates the POC as 15.30% and adjust the revenue by $ 625 during settlement, this part if perfectly working fine

    Second Month

    Business realized the project is in loss, so they revised the cost estimate by loss amount i.e $ 20,000

    Estimated Rev =$ 61,250

    New Estimated Cost =$ 81,250

    Profit = $ (20,000)

    There are no actuals posted in the second month, so when I run KKA2 system is calculating revenue recognization as below, the expectation is system should post a loss of $ (21,875) in the second month. How can this be achieved?

    Regards,
