Paladin keeps a history of invoices that are cancelled during checkout before a receipt is printed. This cancelled invoice information is available as a report that opens in Microsoft Excel. The following shows a sample report. 

Invoice Cancelled Report

The following table describes the report values. Each row represents one cancelled invoice.

Cancelled invoices are normal part of business. However, if a particular employee is cancelling invoices in an uncommon pattern, your store may have a problem. We recommend that you monitor cancelled invoices and investigate anything unusual.
