We are using: 20B (

The following sequence of events was carried out linked to a Purchase Order:

  • PO raised 17-DEC-2019 for QTY 2,586.43 and Unit Price 1
  • PO receipted (QTY 369.50) 03-JAN-2020
  • PO cancelled 13-JAN-2020
  • Receipt corrected to zero 27-AUG-2020
  • PO line adjusted, QUANTITY reduced from 2,586,43 to 369.50
  • PO line has been reduced to the amount of the original receipt (369.50),
  • PO line status is Cancelled
  • Looking at PO Distributions:
    • QUANTITY_ORDERED: 2,586.43
    • QUANTITY_CANCELLED: 2,216.93

Is there any way, via the front-end, of being able to true things up so that Quantity Cancelled = Quantity Ordered?

I presume not, since the cancellation cannot be undone, but I wanted to check here.


Howdy, Stranger!
