Backbilling - Change of MRU


Here we a situation where backbilling (n periods) is activity for 12 periods. Now, when you try to change the MRU in the installation, system does not permit to do this as backbilling is activated. We worked around this problem by doing a service territory meter reading with billing(or final bill), Is there a way in which the MRU can be changed without doing service territory billing or final bill?

    You can not change the MRU if backbilling exists for an installation. However, you can change the MRU by doing time-slicing.

    There is one standard FM "ISU_S_INSTLN_CHANGE" which is used to update INSTALLATION with various billing related info ( MRU, RATE CATEGORY, FACT). And pass the new MRU along with the date in which you want to prorate. The date should be one day after the end of billing date of previous bill orders.

    EX : If the end of billing period is 03/02/2009 then in the X_KEYDATE field pass value as 04/02/2009 and set the flag X_PRORATE = 'X'.

    this FM will automatically time-slice the MRU. So when you open the installation in ES32, two rows will be displayed in which first row will contain the TIME-FROM as 04/02/2009 and TO-DATE as 31/12/9999 along with new MRU and the last row will contain TIME-FROM as (01/01/2009 -> Move-in date or installation active date) and TIME-TO as 03/02/2009.

    Hope this will be useful.
