Multiple Service Billings

Hello Dale, I'm using Emerald 2.2.38.

I've got a hospital MBR account with 16 dialup PPP services. All the
services are yearly.

Some of the services were started in November of 97 and are not due to be
billed until November of this year. Others were started before or after
this date, for example.

1. Service #1 expires 11/1/98
2. Service #2 expires 11/1/98
3. Service #3 expires 11/1/98
4. Service #4 expires 08/1/98
5. Service #5 expires 08/1/98
6. Service #6 expires 09/1/98
7. Service #7 expires 09/1/98
and so on

Now since they are all under the same MBR, it seems they all must be set to
the same billing date.

What I would like to do is when the billing run for August is done, that
Emerald will pickup those services that will expire in August (and August
only) and create an invoice to the address listed in the MBR. And when the
billing run for September is done, that it will pickup those that would
expire in September and do likewise and so on and so on.

I guess what I'm asking for is Billing Dates per serivces rather than just
per MBR.

The only way I can see to achieve this object now is to create multiple
MBRs, one for each month they have services, and then include the yearly
services that would expire in those in months.

If what I would like to do is not possible currently in Emerald, then
please consider this a request to include this as a feature for the next

Your thoughts please.

Thank you.
