Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Payables work center.
  2. Go to the Reports -Lists view.
  3. Open the Aging List for Payables report.
  4. Apply the required selection. Take Cut-off date as 31.01.2018 in this example.
  5. Run the report.

You notice that an invoice that has been canceled after the cut-off date is not being displayed. Since the cancellation is after the cut-off date, you expect the original invoice to be shown in the report.


The cancellation posting got changed to after the cut-off date, whereas the aging report considers the due clearing date from the original posting, which is before the cut-off date.

The steps that leads to such case are as follows:

  1. You posted the original invoice on, say, 10.01.2018
  2. The invoice cancellation was then created with cancellation posting date 15.01.2018 (before the report cut-off date). However, the cancellation invoice got stuck as unposted source document in the General Ledger work center.
  3. Upon posting the unposted source document for the cancellation invoice, you changed the cancellation posting date to 08.02.2018 (after the report cut-off date) via Actions -> Post Business Transaction to Another period.

The nature of the Aging List for Payables is that it considers only the original posting date. Hence, the report is considering the cancellation as 15.01.2018, which is before the cut-off date. Therefore, the original invoice amount does not appear as Outstanding or Due amount in the report.


This is the expected system behavior for the Aging List for Payables.
