Cancel Receipts Using Add/Update Receipts in NUFinancials

This Guide walks a User through the steps of canceling a Receipt from the Add/Update Receipts page.

A receipt cannot be canceled if it has already been matched to a voucher and purchase order.

Receipts can be canceled from Add/Update Receipts or Manage Requisitions.

These steps focus on the Add/Update Receipts page.

Can a receipt that’s been applied via Add/Update also be canceled via Manage Requisition and vice versa?

Also if there’s been a change to a PO, the receipt can only be entered via Add/Update, correct?

  • You entered a receipt in

What information do you need to cancel a receipt?

  • You need the Purchase Order ID number, beginning
