Benefit Plan Variance Calculation in Benefit Plan is incorrect. When the 'Realized Benefit' is greater than 'Planned Benefit', the variance shows as negative variance. This should be a positive variance, as the more the benefit, better it is for the project.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create a benefit plan
  2. Enter Planned Benefit as 1,000.00 
  3. Enter Realized Benefit as 2,000.00 in the same period.

Expected Result:  Benefit Variance = 1,000.00 (positive variance value)

Actual Result:  Benefit Variance = (1,000.00) in red (negative variance value)
