I have a manufacturing order in "confirmed, awaiting for raw materials" state. We realized that the BOM for the product is incorrect, so I want to cancel the order and create a new one. When I try to cancel it, I get the message:

Cannot cancel manufacturing order! You must first cancel related internal picking attached to this manufacturing order.

I am not sure I understand what this error means. Any help is appreciated.

As an alternative to cancelling the picking related to the MO, we wrote a module that does this for you so you can cancel an MO that hasn't been picked in one step.



@Ray: Thanks for sharing this module, this be really very helpful to community people.

the manufacturing order created picking orders, so you should first cancel those orders before canceling the MO

That's what I can not find: How to cancel the picking order

In "Extra Informations" tab, there is a field "Picking List" with the voucher classically named "PTN/XXXX". Open it and cancel it.
