How to Cancel & Close the PO that has open Shipments and incorrect Receipts, that gives the below error while performing Receiving transactions?

Error Message =
      Transaction quantity exceeds available quantity
      Cause:        The transaction quantity exceeded the quantity available to be processed.  
      Action:        Enter the transaction using a smaller quantity

"Goal is to complete the Receiving Transactions and Close the PO"


Say for e.g.,
PO Header is OPEN
PO has 3 lines: Line 1 is CLOSED, others are OPEN
Line Locations (Shipments): Lines 1 is CLOSED, others are CLOSED FOR RECEIVING

There are 2 Receipts

Receipt 1
 Say, this is involved in all PO Lines shipments & receipts.
 With RCV transactions: RECEIVE and multiple RETURN TO VENDOR
 So, here CORRECTION needs to be done to adjust the excess returned to vendor already

Receipt 2
 Say, this Receipt is created only for PO Line#2
 With RCV transactions: RECEIVE, ACCEPT & DELIVER
 Here, perform Return To Vendor transaction to return the goods
