Cannot delete an unposted purchase invoice when a previous version of this purchase invoice has already been posted

An incoming document of a purchase invoice has already been posted. Accidentally I’ve imported this document as an incoming document twice, posted it once and also created this invoice as a unposted purchase invoice.

When I try to post it, the system gives an error that there is already a posted purchase invoice for this invoice no, which is correct. But when I try to delete this unposted purchase invoice, the system gives this error: Posted should be equal to No in Incoming Document.


So how can I delete this unposted purchase invoice in the end?

Hi Warnaarc,

On your purchase invoice that you are trying to delete click "Remove" on the ribbon in the Incoming Document Section and then try to delete the document.

Hi Marcell, you are talking about deleting an incoming document. I've a problem with an unposted purchase invoice (and not with the incoming document).

Please give me a solution for deleting the unposted purchase invoice.

Hi Warnaarc,

You cannot delete the Purchase Invoice because it's linked to an incoming document that was processed already. The Remove action that I suggested will remove the link.

Hi Marcell,

This didn't help. Although the incoming document of this unposted purchase invoice has already been deleted, I still cannot delete the unposted purchase invoice. If I try to delete the incoming document of the posted purchase invoice, then the system gives a message that I cannot delete the incoming document because this is already posted.

Hi WARNAARC,

May be your unposted and posted invoices number series same so you can manually change your unposted purchase invoice Number then try to delete.

Thank You

Hi Ramesh,

My number series of the unposted and posted purchase invoices are already different.

Hi Warnaarc,

It seems like you have error message related to check Vendor Invoice No. in Purchase Invoice. As variant you can change Vendor Invoice No. in second invoice, add "."
