Datafix: Error "Open ASN Exists Against This Shipment" When Trying to Cancel PO Even Though the ASN Was Returned (Doc ID 2771508.1)

Last updated on JUNE 21, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Purchasing - Version 12.2.5 and later
Oracle Inventory Management - Version 12.2.5 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


While attempting to cancel a PO shipment having an ASN received and then returned, the following error occurs:

Open ASN exists against this shipment.

To fix this issue, applied the patch 29170803:R12.PO.D from Bug 29170803.
After applying the patch, there is no issue for new POs but old POs have still same error when trying to cancel it.
We need a Datafix for the old POs created prior to <patch 29170803>.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a PO
2. The supplier creates the ASN for a PO
3. Receive the ASN
4. Return the receipt
5. Attempt to cancel the PO, error occurs
6. After applying the patch 29170803:R12.PO.D, above error is not occurring anymore for new POs
