2420314 - Line Item is not shown as Canceled in Purchase Order Preview


You want to print the Purchase Order XXX which has one canceled Line Item (XXX represents ID of the Purchase Order). The cancelation does not appear in the preview, although the Total Value is right.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Purchase Requests and Orders
  2. Select Purchase Orders
  3. Search for the Purchase Order XXX
  4. Open the Purchase Order XXX
  5. Select Preview
  6. Select Changed PO
  7. See the canceled Line Item is shown just like the other Line Items


Canceling one item is only a Purchase Order change. When you then save it with one canceled line item the Purchase Order will be sent to supplier as changed but not canceled. The cancelation PDF does not visualize any detailed change as the whole Purchase Order is canceled. The changed PDF visualizes changes on item level (not in item details).


This is the expected system behavior.
