Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the General Ledger work center.
  2. Go to the Closing Cockpit view.
  3. Go to the Source Documents subview.
  4. Search for the source document ABC.
  5. Click Actions button and select View Business Transaction option.
  6. Click Mark as Irrelevant button.
  7. Error message is thrown:

Goods receipt not possible; individual material AAA is obsolete

AAA means the individual material ID.


Marking a pair of Business Transactions for Accounting as irrelevant is only possible if all items of the document to be reversed are indeed reversed.


You need to create a goods and services receipt reversal for document ABC, which will create another Business Transaction for Accounting in Processing Status 2-In Process.
After that, you should be able to mark the reversal document as irrelevant. The system will then automatically mark the original document as irrelevant to accounting too.
