Warning: Odometer entered exceeds the last Odo reading on file for Equipment. To update current reading, click the ‘Meters’ button.

The system allows the entry; however, to prevent discrepancies, you will need to run EM Meter Readings to update the equipment's odometer accordingly.

The system allows the entry; however, to prevent discrepancies, you will need to run EM Meter Readings to update the equipment's hour meter accordingly.
