How to Remove Encumbrances on Canceled Purchase Orders via Final Close (Doc ID 338130.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 04, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Purchasing - Version 11.5.10 to [Release 11.5]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
FORM:POXPOVPO.FMB - Purchase Order Summary GUI


With Release 11.5.10, the ability to Finally Close a previously canceled purchase order, line, shipment or release
has been provided.

This new feature allows for an existing encumbrance on a canceled document to be relieved. 

Per the Oracle Purchasing User's Guide (Part Number A82913–06),
encumbrance balances can exist on a given canceled shipment due to two factors:

1. From any quantity delivered but not billed at the time the shipment was
2. From invoices canceled after the shipment was canceled.

In previous versions of the application, the encumbrances existing on a canceled shipment
cannot be removed via the application.

In release 11.5.10 and beyond, the Finally Close action is now available from the Control Menu in the Purchase
Order Summary (POXPOVPO) form.

Please note that this is only available in 11.5.10 and later and cannot be backported.
