Negative Voucher Cannot be Deleted from Accounts Payable Open Items Using a Debit Memo

Upon attempting to remove a negative voucher by creating a debit memo, it is noted that the created debit memo is for a 0 amount and has no AP lines in it. If an attempt is made to add either a negative or positive amount into the selected amount field the error, "selected amount cannot be more than the amount due and cannot be negative" occurs.

Additionally, the debit memo cannot be posted due to the following errors in the A/P Item Edit report:
**E Missing A/P lines
**E Debit Memo will cause Payable to go Negative

 
We are currently evaluating this issue for a fix in a future release or patch.
