In oracle Receivables transaction can be reviewed an updated after creation regardless of whether the transaction was created manually or imported using ‘Auto Invoice’.There are exceptions to this and some system options and profile options have to be set.
If the Allow change to printed transactions system option is ‘Yes’ you can update most of the transaction information, even if the transaction has been printed. However if there is activity against the transaction, you will not be able to make changes to many of the transaction attributes. Activity includes actions such as payments, credit memos, adjustments and including transactions on a consolidated billing invoice.
After your transactions have posted to your General Ledger, you can still update most of information. Receivables maintains a complete audit trail of all the posted changes you make to your accounting entries.
Receivable does not maintain an audit trail when you change a transaction that has not been posted.
Also what can be changed depends on various attribute settings on the transaction.
In addition to updating transactions, you may find the need to delete or void a transaction. Again, there are circumstances under which deleting or voiding a transaction can be accomplished.
Transaction Field Reference
When reviewing the tables, you will notice the tables indicate the field reference in down the left side of the table with the conditions going across the rows. Within the rows is the indication as to whether this field reference can be updated or not any exceptions that must be considered. By using these tables you will resolve many of your own issues as to why a user cannot update particular field on an invoice or credit memo.
When reviewing the update table you will note there are two sections, header and line levels.
Once you save the transaction, you cannot update the transaction number.

Deleting or voiding transactions can be accomplished depending on how your administrator has setup function security on you Oracle Receivables.
If the allow change to Printed Transactions system options is set to Yes and transactions have no activity against them, then the transaction have no activity against them, then the transactions can be removed by one of the following methods:
By delete record from the edit menu. This will delete invoice and any lines.
Invoice with rules cannot be deleted but you can create a credit memo and apply it to the invoice. The credit memo will create a credit entry offsetting the invoice debit entry.
Void the invoice by changing the invoice type in the Transaction window to a type with the Open Receivables and Post to GL options set to No. This will delete the payment schedule and cancel the distributions by removing the GL Date.
Delete the payment schedule by choosing incomplete button in Transaction window. This makes the invoice inaccessible for payment or crediting.
