    Hi,

    When ever we need items, then we rise purchase order.
    When ever we are selling items, then we will do sales order.

    Hi,

    In case of PO - It cannot be cancelled if the invoice matched to it is paid.
    If receiving is done, it has to be unreceipted for cancelling the PO. Also if it is matched to an Invoice - first needs the invoice needs to be cancelled before cancelling the PO.

    You can't cancel the Order once you've completed and confirmed "Pick Release", i.e., the items in the Sales Order lines have been moved from Inventory to a "Staging" sub-inventory - whereby the status of the lines become "Staged/Pick Confirmed".

    NOTE: However, there is a workaround for this - refer to metalink note:
    How To Cancel An Order Line That Has Been Pick Released ? (Doc ID 848628.1)
