How to delete a recurring Journal Entry in Lawson

Though this is a fairly simple task, it typically requires higher access (sometimes temporary access as some organizations only want users deleting journal entries once or twice a month).

  1. Login to Lawson portal and go to GL70.1
  2. Enter the company and journal entry number, hit Inquire.
  3. Click the “New Entry” button
  4. This will take you to GL70.2 and contain the same company/entry number (if not, enter again and hit inquire).
  5. After inquiring again, hit Delete and confirm the journal entry has been deleted.


And you’re done!

Cannot Delete, Requisition is Awaiting Approval

Often users submit a requisition in Lawson and later find an error in the order and need to re-submit. When trying to delete via RQ10, they get the error “Cannot delete, requisition is awaiting approval.” Luckily this is an easy fix.

  1. Go to RQ13 and inquire on the company and requisition number. Then click Unrelease and confirmed it released.
  2. Go back to RQ10.1 and inquire on the same requisition. You’ll now see that its status is “Unreleased”. Now press Delete.

Done! Now go ahead and resubmit a new requisition with corrections.
