IP01 - Start counter reading for maintnance plan with post-decimal places


I need to create maintenance plan reffered to the counter, which has allowed values with one decimal place. I have to fulfill the field labeled "StartCounterReading" with value 52,6 h, but I receive message "Only values without post-decimal places are allowed". I cannot change units to minutes in IP01, because the field with units is inactive - unit is taken from counter properties. I cannot change units in counter, because real counters are in hours and nobody in my company will convert it to minutes... Do you have any idea how to solve my problem?

    No ideas? :)

    I'll write how I solved it. Perhaps it will be useful to someone.

    I have created the maintenance plan with started counter reading 0. After scheduling maintenance plan through IP10 maintenance order is created. I close technically this order with date when the last maintenance was realised. This way SAP takes the state of counter relevant to the last maintenance date. Even when it is with decimal places.

    The con for this method is maintenance order which is created only for initialisation of maintenance in system.
