Symptoms

When attempting to save a 'Stop' Meter Read on a SA/SP when no 'Start' Meter Read is populated, an error similar to the following sometimes occurs.


SA (#########) SP (##########) start read (null) date time (2009-03-31-23.00.00.000000) is later than stop read (55716169890) date time (2009-03-31-14.00.00.000000).

Message number; 3, 31818
Call sequence: ;CIPCSAPR;CIPCSAPL;CIPCSVAP


This scenario can occur in the case where a Service Agreement has been created but before it has been activated it becomes necessary to stop it. In this case, the SA will have a Field activity for both start and stop activity, but the stop read will be populated first if the Field Activity for stop activity gets processed first. This scenario can be replicated by manually adding a Stop Meter Read to a SA/SP, where the SA/SP is not yet active, and no Start Meter Read exists.
