Sales Analysis report does not match Cost of Sales Account


My client is running SAP B1 8.81 PL 6. He has set all items to standard costing method. He has discovered that the difference between the Sales Amount and the Gross Profit amount on the Sales Analysis report, which should equal the Cost of Sales for the Items, does not match the Cost of Sales G/L account on the P&L report. If you look at a sample of rows, the above difference divided by the quantity equals the standard cost of the item. There are no manual journal entries that affect the COS account for the posting period that is being analyzed. I cannot see any mathmatical difference or problem with the above analysis, nor can I find the problem. There is about an $85K difference between the reports. The Sales Amount on the Sales Analysis report matches the revenue account on the P&L to the penny. Has anyone ever compared these 2 reports? Thank you for your help.
