"Deviation from Budget" warning problem

Hi all!

I don't understand how budget deviation is calculated.

Here is what I do:

1) I defined a budget for a G/L account in the current fiscal year

2) I have set that budget deviation to be calculated for annual budgets only

3) I create a sales order with one item - the price of the item is $400 and quantity is 1

4) I set a discount for the sales order item - 50% meaning the item will be sold for $200

5) When I press the "Add" button at the bottom of the "Sales Order" form a message pops up warning me that there is a deviation from the defined budget.

That seems OK.

Now I repeat steps from 1 to 3. Step 4 however is different.

4) Instead of defining a discount for the sales order item I define a discount on the whole order - again it is 50%

5) When I press the "Add" button at the bottom of the "Sales Order" form no message box appears and the sales order is created

Why is that? Shouldn't there be a message box like in the previous case?

Any help will be appreciated.

Regards, Yavor

PS: If I skip step 4 and proceed to step 5 a warning message box appears so I don't understand what the overall discount does to budget deviation.
