    How to Close a Cancelled Purchase Order?

    Simon Mason
      We have a Purchase Order that has been cancelled but is still showing a closure status of "Open". This is causing problems in that we can not remove the receipted amount from our Accruals Report.

      Every attempt I have made to re-open, correct the receipt, close etc has failed.

      I was under the impression that when a Purchase Order was cancelled, it automatically updated the closure status to "Closed".

      Is there any way to either close this PO or change the qty receipted?

          Please check whether the PO is cancelled from the PO Headers or lines or shipment region & how many lines are there in the PO.
          If the PO shipment is cancelled & there are open lines or shipments, then Oracle does not close the PO Header unless & untill all the pending activities with the other lines have been completed.

          As the PO shipment is cancelled, so you can not able to reopen the same & receive the quantities. It is better to complete the receipt & invoicing of the other lines. Then automatically the PO will get closed.

            I sort of have the same issue. I have a po header that is cancelled as well as the line but the closure status remains as open. I want to be able to get the closure status to closed but can't. Any ideas why? The amount of the po and the matched/billed amount is the same. Just can't figure out why the closure status would not go to closed but remains open.

              Hi Peter

              Just wondering if you ever resolved this as I've encountered the same problem with some of my Purchase Orders.

              Kind Regards
