2603226 - No Values Available for Sender in Rule - Error in Overhead Distribution Run


You want to distribute all the costs of Direct Cost Project ABC (ABC stands for the Project name) to Cost Centers.
You create the Distribution Rule XYZ (XYZ stands for the Distribution Rule name) for the Project ABC, setting up the Sender as ABC.
You get the error message 'No values available for Sender ABC in Rule XYZ' after doing the Overhead Distribution Run.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Cost and Revenue work center.
  2. Select the Periodic Tasks view and go to the Overhead Distribution subview.
  3. Run the Overhead Distribution using Distribution Rule XYZ.
    Result: 'No values available for Sender ABC in Rule XYZ' error is received.


This is the expected system behaviour.


As per current system design, assigning more than one Sender (Project Task) is not supported in the Distribution Rule with Sender type as Project.
The only way to distribute costs from multiple Project Tasks is by creating Distribution Rule for each Project Task accordingly.
