it says I must first cancel the order, So I click cancel. Then it says I must "first cancel all receptions related to the purchase order". So, I went ahead and canceled the delivery, but it still gives me the same message.

go into each order line in the purchase order and delete them, that will help you discover which line still has a reception attached to it. Then cancel it.

I don't understand. I can no longer edit the purchase order. What am I deleting?

You could go to warehouse/deliver/receive by order and cancel the incoming shipment that corresponds to the PO. Next step is to cancel the PO

I did cancel the shipment corresponding to the PO, but it still will not cancel the PO

Make sure you are cancelling the INCOMING SHIPMENT. In your question you typed that you cancelled the DELIVERY, which is related to the SALES ORDER, not the PURCHASE ORDER.

Yes. I did cancel the incoming shipment and not the delivery. Sorry about that confusion.

Just an indication for those like me who have the same problem but who do *not* have installed the warehouse module, you won't be able to see the menu "Warehouse".

Then to cancel the order proceed as follow :

- Purchases / Invoice Control / Incoming shipments

- cancel the appropriate line

- then go back to the order and you will be able to cancel it.

Kind regards

How can I cancel the purchase order that has receive product? I mean shipment has "done".
