  3. Search for respective invoice
  4. Navigate to document flow
  5. Open cancellation invoice
  6. Navigate to Exceptions tab

Cause

There is a previous supplier invoice which has been posted with item type "Additional Cost Debit Item" and that invoice has reference of the current invoice under cost distribution.

You can find all the related supplier invoices in the Invoices and Credit memos view-> advanced filter using the reference id like purchase order reference because additional cost debit invoice does not reflect in the standard document flow of the normal purchase documents like supplier invoice or purchase order etc.
