There are three methods that you can use to void an invoice in Payables Management in Microsoft Dynamics GP or in Microsoft Business Solutions - Great Plains. Use one of the following methods depending on the applied status of the invoice and of the apply document.

INTRODUCTION

Method 1

Use this method when the following conditions are true:

  • The apply document is fully applied to the invoice.

  • The apply document and the invoice are in the history tables.

  1. Void the apply document. To do this, follow these steps:

    1. On the Transactions menu, click Purchasing, and then click Void Historical Transactions.

    2. In the Void Historical Payables Transactions window, click to select the Void check box for the apply document that you want to void.

    3. Click Void.

    4. When you are prompted to print posting journals, select the destination, and then click OK.

    5. Close the Void Historical Payables Transactions window.

  2. Void the invoice. To do this, follow these steps:

Method 2

Use this method when the following conditions are true:

  • The apply document is only partially applied to the invoice.

    1. On the Transactions menu, click Purchasing, and then click Transaction Entry.

    3. Click Post.

    4. Close the Payables Transaction Entry window, select the destination when you are prompted to print posting journals, and then click OK.

    2. In the Vendor ID list, click the vendor who has the additional invoice that you want to apply.

    3. In the Document No. list, click the apply document.

    4. Click to select the Apply check box that is next to the additional invoice that you created.

    5. Click OK.

Method 3

Use this method when the following conditions are true:

  • The apply document is fully applied.

  • The invoice is only partially applied.
