Create Cancellation Document from Invoice through DI API on Excel

Hello you all!

I have an excel with a list of DocEntry from Invoices. This invoices must be cancelled and to do that I used the following code:

vDoc.GetByKey (inv_docentry)

retcode = vDoc.Cancel

This returned the following error: -5006-The requested action is not supported for this object

Then looking through the web I found a similar question in this forum:

And I changed my code to this:

vDoc.GetByKey (inv_docentry)


retcode = vDoc.Add

And now the system return this error: -5002-Ivalid value [OINV.Netproc]]

My Client is on 9.1 PL 8 and my Excel is 2013 version

Any thoughts?

Many Thanks

    You should store the created cancellation document to another object first and it should be the one to be added.

    Please see the code below.

    Dim vDoc As SAPbobsCOM.Documents

    Dim oCancelDoc As SAPbobsCOM.Documents

    Set oCancelDoc = vCmp.GetBusinessObject(oInvoices)

    Set vDoc = vCmp.GetBusinessObject(oInvoices)


    inv_docentry = Sheet1.Range("A" & row_no1 & "").Value

    If inv_docentry = "" Then Exit Sub

    GoSub Cancel_Invoice

    row_no1 = row_no1 + 1

    GoTo Get_Invoice


    vDoc.GetByKey (inv_docentry)

    Set oCancelDoc = vDoc.CreateCancellationDocument

    retcode = oCancelDoc.Add()

    If retcode <> 0 Then

    vCmp.GetLastError lErrCode, sErr

    Msg MsgBox (retcode & " - " & sErrMsg)

    End If
