Modified on Wed, 20 Sep 2023 at 09:30 AM



Purpose of this document


This process provides an easy method to reverse a Posted Agency Invoice and replace it with an open Agency Order.   This process is normally needed to reverse an Agency Order that was posted incorrectly – for example missing Delivery Fees or a Grant application.  This new function will create and post an Agency Return Order/Credit Memo (which is applied to the Posted Invoice) and then create a replacement Agency Order.  


Ceres Object release 5.00.00 & 5.00.54 are required for the functionality described in this document.
