Information in this document applies to any platform.


In Payables, a user has created Recurring Invoices incorrectly and tries to cancel them.   The current period invoices are cancelled successfully, but the future period invoices get the following error message:

Error:  Payables cannot cancel this invoice because the GL date of at least one distribution is in a closed period and no open or future periods are defined.
Please ask the appropriate person in your organization to define an open or future period.   Payables can then use the next valid accounting date as the GL date on the reversal distributions.
