Exception:Cancel not possible; cancel related additional cost invoice first
SAP Business ByDesign
Reproducing the Issue
- Go to Supplier invoicing work center
- Go to Invoices and credit memos view
- Choose Show field as All document
- Search and select the relevant document
- Click on edit
- Navigate to exception tab
Where you will see the above exception
There is other invoice that is additional cost invoice done against this Supplier invoice which needs to be cancelled before posting the cancellation invoice.
Steps to view additional cost invoices created for a Supplier invoice
- Go to General ledger work center
- Go to closing cockpit view
- Select the Source document view
- Show All Source documents
- You will see documents
- Filter with Source document type as *Supplier invoice*
- Additional cost invoices if exists for the supplier invoice will appear along with other normal invoices if exists
- check each invoice to see if they are related to your invoice( your invoice and the additional cost debit item invoice should have reference to same Purchase order)
Please cancel all such additional cost Invoices first and then post the cancellation invoice.
Unfortunately we cannot have the additional cost item invoice to be visible in the Document flow of the respective Purchase order cause the this Invoice does not have an impact on the Purchase order details.
However we think that the addition cost Item which is actually related to Original invoice should be made visible in the Document flow of the Original invoice.
Which also is not there currently, hence, we request you to add the same to the ideas forum at
so that based on the votes it shall be developed in the future releases
