Resolution

This is caused by DE56712, WNF

You must make sure the curve attribute is added to the Portfolio Investment object Attribute Registry and resync.  What is happening is the sum gets copied over as hours but then gets divided by 3600 again, which makes it look like FTE.  When the curve is copied it sets the sum in seconds so things work out. 

Please do the following:

These attributes should be added as Attribute Registry:

  1. Actuals for Labor Resources
  2. Actuals Sum for Labor Resources
  3. ETC for Labor Resources
  4. ETC Sum for Labor Resources

Objects > Portfolio Investment > Attribute Registry > move the above attributes from Available column to Selected column > Save and Return

Once the above activity is done, run the sync job again.
