Goal

Question 1:
We are trying to unclose EAM work orders but get an error message.
The reason we cannot unclose the work order is because the Accounting Period has been closed.

The problem is that these EAM work orders still have open materials outstanding.  This is showing as demand on Inventory and causing planning issues.
If these EAM work orders cannot be unclosed,  then is there a way to remove the open materials?

Question 2:
When the status of the work order is 'Closed' we can use the 'Cancel Allocation' option.  However, when the work order status is 'Released' we cannot use either the 'Cancel Allocation' or the 'Cancel/Close Line' options.  Is this intended functionality?
