Covered Line: 1 OKX_COUNTER Name: OKX_COUNTER For Amount:
Reason: Error: User-Defined Exception. Error Message:

Steps to Reproduce:
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Define a usage item to be priced at a unit price.
2. Define a counter group with these attributes:
        Association Type = Service
        Enter a service name in the Associations button.
3. Define multiple counters for this counter group.

    Each counter has these attributes:
    counter type = regular
    uom = Each
    usage item = usage item name
4. Create a Service Agreement using the Service Contracts Manager responsibility.
5. Create a service line, and enter the service name that is referenced in the counter group. This will instantiate a counter for that service.
6. Create a usage line with these attributes

Usage Type = Actual by Quantity
Period = Month (matching the billing period in the billing stream)
Default = enter value
- Select one of the counters for the service.
7. Approve and sign the contract.
8. Enter a counter reading.
9. Run Main Billing in Preview mode. NO error occurs.
10. Open the contract for update and then add a new usage line, one that references the same service.
11. Run Check QA to return the contract to an Active status.
12. Enter a counter reading.
13. Run Main Billing in Preview mode. The error occurs.
