Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Purchase orders work center
  2. Go to Purchase orders
  3. Search for the Purchase order
  4. Click on Acknowledgment received appearing under column PO Acknowledgement status
  5. Select the Acknowledgment with status Up-to-Date
  6. Click on Delete PO Acknowledgement button

 You will get error.



Status Up-to-Date means that it is the last created Purchase order acknowledgement.
Also, since PO acknowledgement is done at least once we need to have the details in the system.

Also, the delete button is provided to delete only out of date acknowledgement.

We cannot disable the button only for Up-to-Date acknowledgements as the UI is multi select enabled. So, if more than one acknowledgement is selected some of which are Out-of-Date, and one is up to date we cannot disable it as you would not know why it has been disabled.

For this reason, button is enabled but we convey through error info message.


Please create correct PO acknowledgement and then you can delete the old acknowledgement.
