Issue/Introduction

ETC COST does not get calculated in Clarity PPM for an Expense resource that has a rate of $ -1 in the rate matrix but in Open Workbench you can see ($40)

STEPS TO REPRODUCE

1. Create a Project (financially enabled) and Task with start/finsh dates 1 Jan - 31 Dec 2018
2. Create a Financially Expense resource and allocate / assign to Project and Task. Set default allocation to zero percent.
3. Create a rate matrix with a rate/cost set to $-1 for the Expense resource and associate to the Project
4. Run the Rate matrix job
5. In the Task Assignment page, enter 40 ETC hours in the 'ETC By Period' TSV for the current week
6. On the Task list page, click on the 'Actions' drop down list and run the 'Update Cost Totals' action

Expected Results: ETC Cost on the Task => Assignments page to be populated with ($40) [negative $40]
Actual Results: ETC Cost on the Task => Assignments page is populated with zero
