Why are journal entries for cancelled invoices kept posted?

I've noticed when we validate a supplier invoice and later on we cancel it, the original journal entry is kept posted. If we set the invoice to draft, edit it and validate it again, a second journal entry is generated. This causes great confusion with duplicated moves.

Any idea why this happens?

Thank you.

Youmay have installed a module that does not comply with the standard cancel module. In the standard everything works fine. Otherwise it would be a very strange and unusable piec of software. So, please check what custom modules you have instal that causes that.

Good luck!

You're right, Eva. Probably some module overriding the cancel function. I'll check it out. Thank you!
