Display two equipments under same eqipment number

Dear PM Experts,

I have created an equipment using t code IE01. When I run IH08 two equipment are displayed in same equipment number. When I open master data details by double clicking on one of such equipment the system shows following message

2 usage period(s) exist for today's date

The details of the message are

System Response

As several usage periods exist for the selected date, the system branches automatically to the usage period that was last valid.


If you want to display an alternative usage period, select Extras -> Usage list from the Initial or from the master record screens.

But I didn't create another equipment by using same equipment number. Master data details of both equipment are same except valid to date. Valid to date of one of equipment is 12.05.2017 (Both valid from date and valid to date are same) and valid to date of another equipment is 31.12.9999 (valid from date is 12.05.2017).

I created only one but system shows two equipment. Can anyone explain me why is that and I want to archive the equipment which has same valid from date and valid to date. Can I do it??

Thank you,

    In the IH08 selection screen, make sure the Period date is defaulted to today's date.
