Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Supplier Invoicing work center
  2. Select view Invoices and Credit Memos
  3. Open the respective paid or posted invoice
  4. Navigate to exceptions tab or select "Check"
  5. Error is displayed


The supplier invoice is created with respect to delivery documents which got generated from time recording.

If you open any of the active time entry related goods and services receipt, you cannot cancel it directly.

In this case, you have canceled time entry after invoice was posted and/or paid which is why the follow-up delivery(goods receipt) documents got canceled later and now it is throwing new errors in the invoice.


You should submit the time entries for the relevant project task, purchase order and service agent in the system again and then it will automatically create the delivery documents from them and system will assign them to the respective supplier invoice.

It is always suggested to release the delivery documents first and then invoicing should be done w.r.t the delivery document to avoid such issues.

You should not cancel any related documents once invoice is posted. If you have to cancel, you should cancel the documents in reverse order starting from the last document as per the document flow.
