Resetting of reading of a Meter

Former Member
0 Kudos

In the register group of meter (as shown in iq03) we earlier maintained the meter index as 5 before decimal places. One of the meters installed at customer's premises has already read meter reading till 99999 and has now again started measuring consumption from 0.

But we are unable to find any solution to enter a lower current meter reading from previous meter reading in the SAP system. The system is giving a message as Prev MR > Current MR.

Kindly Help.

Hi Kunal,

Lets take a example

meter index is 5 before decimal places and 3 after decimal places.

Previous reading - 99999.001

Current reading - 100.001

Current reading = current - previous => 101.00

The sytem takes care of this automatically. It starts again from 0 if the meter has revolved to full reading possible.

There shall be no problem with this.

An user exit - EDMLELDV has been used in this case so its giving u the error message maintained in it Prev MR > Current MR...try working out on this.

Hi Kunal,

Table TE121 is used for determination of upper and lower limits. Types of validations are stored in table TE219.

I think you would be required to turn off the check in the condition where meter has revolved completely a round.

Well, these checks are defined in the customizing at following location.

Utilities->DM->Meter Reading->Validations->Independent Validation->Define tolerance limit for validation class

Cheers,
