Meter reading not visible in EL31

Hi Experts,

We have a situation where the meter reading is not seen on installation and EL31.

There are 4 registers out of which only register 2 is billable.

After it is billed , there are changes done on other 3 registers' meter readings.

The meter reading date is changed to 00.00.0000 in EL29. Also the meter reading status is changed to '0'.

After these changes , we do not see meter reading for register 2 in EL31 and on installation.

However we could not replicate the same on quality.

Is it possible to change the meter reading date to 00.00.0000 and meter reading status to 0 in EL29? How can it be done ?

    Hi Nachiket,

    In EL29 , Meter Reading Date & Meter Read status cannot be changed, Its in display mode.

    In EL27, Meter Reading Date can be changed but not the Meter Read Status(display mode).

    If you are seeing changes to date and status after billing , this is definitely cause of custom developments. Please check the code.

    If you are on EHP6+ system, you can check table EABLDEL if the meter read document is deleted.

    Hope this helps. 😊

      Hello Felix, the new function with table EABDEL is released with EHP6 (QD=Quantity Determination). In EHP6 the business function ISU_QD1 is necessary. In EHP7 the business function ISU_AMI_4 and ISU_MCOMM4 is necessary.

      Kind regards

    Hello Nachiket,

    I don't suggest to implement the mentioned change (field ADAT 00.00.0000 ) because the SAP system doesn't know the date 00.00.0000 and it also doesn't expect such value. You can adapt the field ABLSTAT with several enhancements  (EDMLELDE or EDMLELDV) in the transaction EL29. But the mentioned field ABLSTAT is not designed to overwrite directly in EL29.

    Kind regards
