Cancellation of the goods issue for the delivery represents resetting the goods issue posting transaction. If you cancel the goods issue for a delivery, the system creates a cancellation document that copies the quantities and the valuation from the goods issue document and makes the respective value- and quantity based stock posting. In addition, the cancellation document is updated in the document flow for the delivery.
Cancellation of the goods issue also changes the goods movement status of teh delivery. After cancellation, it is possible to process the delivery again (e.g change the delivery quantity).
If the delivery has already been partly or fully billed, it is too late to cancel the goods issue for the delivery. Furthermore, it is not possible to cancel the goods issue for only a part of the delivery. The entire order is always cancelled.
If you wish to cancel the goods issue for deliveries, you can choose the relevant deliveries by using the criteria shipping point, route, goods issue date, group of deliveries or shipment number. You can select one or several deliveries and perform the cancellation. The system creates a log for the cancellations that have been carried out and the errors that have occurred.
A cancellation movement type must be defined for each movement type that is used in the goods issue. If you have defined your own movement types, you need to define corresponding cancellation movement types and assign the movement types to the goods issue.
