Correcting Errors after Approval

The error correction action allows you to correct documents by creating a new document that reverses the original transaction that has been fully approved. A document created with the error correction action must route and be approved in the same manner as the e-doc it corrects.

exclaim     The error correction action should not be confused with the financial transaction document type General Error Correction (GEC), which is described in “General Error Correction” in the KFS Guide to the Financial Processing Module.
