AP Invoice Approval journal - Approve by


I am hoping someone could help - i am using AX2009.

When i fetch a voucher into the AP invoice approval journal, and I cancel the voucher (functions>cancel). I then post the journal. The approved by field is updated to the user who posts the journal. I would like the approve by to remain as is and not be changed when the journal is posted. That way I have history of an invoice that was put into a pool, who was suppose to approve it and that it was cancelled.

(if I dont cancel the voucher and post the journal, the approve by field remains unchanged - the way i want it to be).

Please help…



Why do you cancel the voucher?

Hi Rach,

The original approver is still against the intial posting of the invoice register entry, which can be seen in the vendor transactions.
