Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Goods and Service Receipts work center view
  2. Search for the respective Goods Receipt document which has a follow up invoice document
  3. Select Cancel button
  4. The Goods receipt is cancelled


System allows to cancel Goods receipt document even though invoice is created and is in any status, because in certain real-time scenarios, if the product needs to be exchanged, then the supplier invoice need not cancelled but only delivery document is cancelled and replaced with new one.


Once you have canceled a goods and services receipt or goods return, it cannot be re-released or deleted.
If you want to restore a canceled goods and services receipt or goods return, you need to recreate the document in the Purchase Orders to Be Delivered view.
