how to delete/cancel/complete a Production Order with entries

    How do you cancel(or delete, or complete) a Production Order that has some ledger entries against it?
    For instance, some time was booked and then reversed. So the net amount charged is zero.
    It seems the Output Journal does not allow zero qty to be output.

    I've seen this a few times and the only way I've found is to post an output of 1 without consuming anything.  This will let you finish the production order.  Then use an item journal to make a negative inventory adjustment.  Make sure to use the "Applies to entries" to make sure you take out the 1 you just made because the cost will be off.

    Mark is spot on.  You have to output 1, then adjust it back out.  Once you have posted the output you will be able to finish the Production Order.  Be careful of any backflushed Items in the BOM, otherwise you'll have to adjust them as well.

    Thanks for the information.

    Seems clumsy, but I will do as you suggest.
