Returns order After cancelling Invoice


Hello Friends,


We recently came across a strange scenario in SAP:

We have created Sales Order, Delivery & Invoice. (OR - LF - F2).

Now the material was Returned & we created Returns Order (With reference to F2 Invoice), Delivery & Credit Memo (F2 - RE - LR - G2)

Subsequrntly we tried to Cancel the original Invoice (F2) & to our surprise system successfully cancelled the Invoice.

Ideally once we create subsequent document, system should not allow to cancel preceeding Document. Specially in case of Returns, where we have create Returns Order, Delivery (PGR) & Credit Memo, still systme is allowing to Cancel Original Invoice is very strange case (because we have already given Credit to Customer in form of Credit Memo then system should not allow to cancel Original Invoice).

Have any one of you encountered a scenario like this? Is there something missing at my side?

I have referred to below thread, but there is no clue:
