Backwards Counters and Maintenance Plans


HI Experts,

I am looking for information relating to setting up backward counters to schedule Maintenance Plans. When I try to create a Maintenance Plan linked to a Backward Counter, I receive the error "Only counters that run forwards can be entered - Error IP124" . What am I doing wrong? How can I use backwards counters with maintenance plans?

We have several clocks that count down the hours til the next major or minor pm is due. The technician manually records the time from these clocks. Worst case is that we can subtract the counter time from a constant if we have to, but I'd like to have the technician enter in the clock time directly with out any manipulation needed.

Thanks in advance,
