Material and Expenses roles ETC is changed when opened in Microsoft Project (MSP). Labor and Equipment is not affected by the same. When saving the project, the new ETC values from MSP will also be saved in PPM.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a project and a task (e.g.: from 10/4 to 11/3) 
  2. Allocate 4 roles: Labor, Equipment, Material and Expense types. 
  3. Allocate the roles onto the task, with 70h ETC each 
  4. Open project in MSP using the new driver

Expected Results: ETC for all roles is 70

Actual Results: ETC for Material and Expense roles is 69


This is caused by CLRT-81350/DE29511.


This has been reproduced using the new driver on PPM v14.3, v14.4 and v15.1.


This issue is fixed in CA PPM 14.4 patch 5, 15.1 patch 3, and 15.2
