Chapter 07A ABC Action Analysis Exercise 7A-2  (continued) 2. The table prepared in part (1) above allows two different perspectives on  the overhead cost of the order. The column totals that appear in the last  row of the table tell us the cost of the order in terms of the activities it  required. The row totals that appear in the last column of the table tell us  how much the order cost in terms of the overhead accounts in the  underlying accounting system. Another way of saying this is that the  column totals tell us what the costs were incurred  for . The row totals tell  us what the costs were incurred  on . For example, you may spend  money  on  a chocolate bar to satisfy your craving  for  chocolate. Both  perspectives are important. To control costs, it is necessary both to  know what the costs were incurred for and what actual costs would have  to be adjusted (i.e., what the costs were incurred on).
