In the current version of the software, export of planned cost values does not assume the source data contains only one transaction per period. If multiple transactions exist per period in EcoSys, all of them are sent to SAP. The transactions are then summed up based on per period. This method eliminates the need to sum up multiple transactions in each period to a single transaction.
