Billing multiple Meter Reading Reasons on same day

Hello all,

I was attempting to bill an installation where there was a meter with 2 meter reading reasons on the same day.

01 - periodic meter reading

22- meter reading at billing rel. removal.

The 22 meter reading is at 23.59, the 01 reading at 13:02.

When I execute the billing: the billing doc that covers until the 01 reading does pick up the 01 read and bills accordingly.

The next period however does not opick up the 22 reading, and such a portion on the consumption for the day does not get billed.

Has any one experienced this? 

I have seen SAP use multiple reading types ont he same day: 09 / 01 as an example.. or even 11/09, or 16/09.

Any suggestions as to a configuration item that needs to be changed or a process to be followed?

Many thanks.

BBY RMSK

    Hi,

    It depends upon what priority has been set in customisation for the MR reason.

    If both the MR are required on same day, then logically you can go for 22 reason because it is of "Billing rel Removal". Check this once as how your Client expects it.

    Please check the below node in SPRO settings, may be it wlll help you out or will give a way ahead.

    """Define Priority of Meter Reading Reasons for Meter Reading Interval Check"""

    Path:- SAP Utilities-->Device Management-->Meter Reading-->Meter Reading Order-->Order Creation-->Define Priority of Meter Reading Reasons for Meter Reading Interval Check.

    • Hi Arun,

      What sachin said is correct but 11-Meter reading after program./adjustment,16-Meter reading before program./adjustment is a default MR reasons which will be used by system internally.

      So I think we can not maintain priority for those MR reasons.

    Hi RMSK,

    Have you checked the MR reasons priority settings? in SPRO.

    Chk- ""Define Priority of Meter Reading Reasons for Meter Reading Interval Check"" in the Meter Reading Order--> MR Order creation tab in spro..
