When attempting to cancel the requisition with status 'In Process' from the iProcurement form, an error is presented to users.

This is successful from the core purchasing forms.

You cannot cancel an in process requisition.


Cancellation of In Process Requisition is allowing in Core Forms application, but in iProcurement the same is not allowed after patch for

Hence there is a inconsistency between Core Forms and iProcurement.
