Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Purchase Requests and Orders work center
  2. Go to the Purchase Orders view
  3. Select the relevant Purchase Order
  4. Delete and Cancel button is grayed out


If the migrated purchase order is in status Sent or Acknowledgement Received or Not Yet Acknowledged, only for such purchase orders Deletion is not allowed. And rest of purchase order status you cannot Delete them. If the migrated purchase order is in Follow-Up Document Created status ,which means you have also migrated the corresponding Inbound Delivery(goods receipt) and Supplier Invoice. Since the follow up documents were not available in ByDesign system, you cannot cancel them, thus you cannot cancel purchase order as well.


You can only Delete the purchase orders which are in status In Preparation. You cancel purchase order which are in status Sent or Acknowledgement Received or Not Yet Acknowledged. If the migrated purchase order is in Follow-Up Document Created status, please Finish them manually and then create new purchase orders.
