R12: Payables: Cancelled Invoice Has PO Matched Lines Created Through Quick Match Which Can Not Be Discarded (Doc ID 2098302.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 04, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Payables - Version 12.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


A cancelled invoice which does not have any invoice lines can be quick matched to a Purchase Order. Lines added due to Quick Match can not be discarded or modified since Invoice is cancelled. Due to this invoice gets stuck in a status where no action can be performed and it also prevents the Period Close.

Steps that lead to this issue:

  1. Enter an Invoice Header with Purchase order number. Do not enter any invoice lines.
  2. Cancel the invoice by clicking Action > Cancel.
  3. Then click on 'Quick Match'
  4. Lines will be created which cannot be discarded.
