Overhead template is calculating overhead on quantities once again

Effective Jan 1 2015, we can been using an overhead template which was created using CPT1 which allows you to charge overhead on a production order based on quantities delivered on the production order.

This is what has happened:

Jan 2015:

Quantity produced on the production order X was 1500 eaches

Overhead rate is $0.10 per each

Overhead charged using CPTD to production order X  = 0.10 * 1500 = $150

Transaction CPTD runs as a scheduled batch job every night.

Throughout January, the overhead was charged only on the additional quantity every day on the order.

Feb 2015

Since Feb 1 , no further quantity has been produced on the production order.

CPTD runs every night as usual

But in February, CPTD is again charging overhead to the production order based on the quantity delivered on the order  which is 1500 eaches.

But that production has already been taken into account in the overhead postings in January

Why is CPTD reading the same value again and charging overhead on it?

Any help on this will be highly appreciated since there are 1000s of production orders involved
