Tasks with cost resource MUST be calculated in BCWS column in Project Desktop.
BCWS column calculate values from tasks that has work and material resources, but ignore cost resources in the calculation. This is wrong and make a distortion in Earned Value results (BCWP column).
Please, solve this error making BCWS column calculate cost resources in the tasks as well.

Nice to see that we have so many people with this same problem, gave me some hope.... I hope Microsoft Project team give this the attention it needs because we want to use the earned value columns with total confidence
It's an error that must be corrected!
Eu tenho o mesmo problema aqui. Por favor, alguém ajude a consertar!

First time I tried anything like this, it was still on version 2010 and that means this bug has over 10 years. Good luck.
In 2017 I got back to attempt something, as I was building an add on for MSProject too. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/cuidado-com-o-bug-do-valor-agregado-ms-project-peter-mello/?originalSubdomain=pt
And believe me, that is not their worst bug that remains unfixed.
Please check it out. Thanks
