Field Definitions: EM Meter Reading Adjustment Form
The following is a list of field descriptions for the EM Meter Reading Adjustment form. Many of the descriptions include links to other topics that provide additional information about or related to the topic.
Enter the equipment (from EM Equipment) for which you are making meter reading adjustments. Initially defaults the equipment selected in EM Equipment.
Select Meter Reading Type
Select the type of meter reading to adjust.
The meter reading type will always default as "Odometer" unless the equipment's current odometer reading is 0.00 and the hour meter reading is greater than 0.00.
The grid will automatically refresh when switching between Odometer and Hours and start/end date values have been entered.
Enter the beginning and ending date in a range of dates containing the posted meter readings you wish to adjust. The grid will automatically populate with meter readings for the selected equipment/reading type that fall within the specified date range.
Mth - Month
Enter the month (within the specified date range) by which to restrict the transactions shown in the grid. The grid will refresh to display only those transactions posted in the specified month.
Enter the transaction number of the meter reading you wish to change. You will only need to enter a value in this field if you are changing a single transaction.
The grid will refresh to display only the meter reading with this transaction number.

Enter the new replaced meter reading for this transaction. New reading must be greater than the previous replaced meter reading. You may leave this field blank if you are adjusting the new meter reading only.
