Applies to:

Oracle Payables - Version 12.0.0 to 12.0.6 [Release 12.0]

  2. Open the Invoice Workbench
    (N) Invoices > Entry > Invoice
  3. Query an Invoice
  4. Click on the [Actions] button
  5. Check option "Cancel Invoice"
  6. Click Ok
  7. If the invoice is affected by this issue, then the invoice will be left with Distribution Variance holds and not cancel successfully.
