Last updated on AUGUST 09, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Payables - Version to [Release 11.5]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In 11i eBusiness Suite (EBS) Oracle Payables, an invoice cannot be actioned due to various errors / application blocks.

1. The invoice cannot be cancelled as the 'Cancel Invoices' option is not available for selection in the 'Invoice Actions' form.
2. The invoice cannot be validated as the following error is thrown:

APP-SQLAP-97634: The invoice &invoice_number has an accounting hold and is pending cancellation so you can no longer submit it for validation.
To have the system automatically validate the invoice and complete cancellation, please either manually release the hold, or correct the
errors that caused the hold then cancel the invoice.

The accounts on the invoice are enabled, are not end-dated and are marked to 'Allow Posting'.
