“Cannot edit a record in Vendor invoices" when opening pending vendor invoices

Posted on by 365

When trying to open pending vendor invoices Infolog populates with the message, “Cannot edit a record in Vendor invoices (VendInvoiceInfoTable). The record has never been selected.”

How do I fix this

    “Cannot edit a record in Vendor invoices" when opening pending vendor invoices
    I see a verified answer that this error occurs when there is no PO associated with the invoice. However i got this error and the invoice does have PO associated with it. we were able to resume workflow and fix the issue but want to prevent this from happening again. Any thoughts?

    The solution I proposed on May 11, 2017 worked for us. Dynamics AX 2012 R3.

    The error occurs when an invoice without an associated purchase order is opened from the pending invoice list if there is a record in the PurchTable where the PurchId is empty.

    I suspect the error occurs because the query run by the VendEditInvoice form returns a PurchTable record. Normally no records are returned since the empty value of the VendInvoiceInfoTable.PurchID should not find a matching PurchTable.PurchId.

    Proposed solution: assign a PurchId to the PO in SQL. Then find and delete the PO in AX.

    I realize that this post is over a year old, but I am running into the same problem. If a pending invoice is not linked to a purchase order, it throws an error when the user tries to edit or open it from the pending invoice list. A new invoice can be created from the pending invoice list, but after the window is closed, the invoice cannot be re-opened for editing. Invoices which are linked to a purchase order can be edited without a problem.

    In addition to the error message: Cannot edit a record in Vendor invoices (VendInvoiceInfoTable), is the message: The record has never been selected.

    Any assistance would be appreciated.

    Hello Brian,

    I do not fully understand your issue.

    You opened the pending vendor invoice list page, selected one of your pending invoices and then got an infolog with the text above?

    Can you probably describe in more details your steps that triggered this infolog?
