SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Receivables work center.
  2. Go to the Invoice Summary Documents view.
  3. Search for the Invoice Summary ID: XYZ (XYZ represents the invoice ID).
  4. Select Edit.

The Cancel button is not available.


This is the expected system behaviour:

  • The Monthly Invoice cannot be directly cancelled.
  • Only the Payer Invoice can be directly cancelled. Hence for the Payer Invoice, the Cancel button is available.


  • To cancel the Monthly Invoice, you need first to cancel its respective Payer Invoice. On Cancel of the Payer Invoice, the Monthly Invoice status will also be updated to cancelled.
  • The respective Payer Invoice Reference ID is under the 'General and Balance Information' tab and here under the 'General' header.
