You cancel requests from the Request form in the Aeon Desktop Client. Under the Cancel button is a drop-down box containing a list of Reasons for Cancellation. These Reasons for Cancellation are configured in the Customization Manager in the ReasonsForCancellation table under System | General.

The ReasonsForCancellation Table

The reasons for cancellation that are displayed in the Aeon Desktop Client can be edited, and new reasons can be added, in the Customization Manager. To do so, open the Customization Manager and go to the ReasonsForCancellation table.

The Reason Number Field in the ReasonsForCancellation Table

Records in the ReasonsForCancellation table should be in numerical order beginning with 0 and proceeding sequentially with no gaps in enumeration. Be sure that the Reason Number field in each table as it is displayed in the Customization Manager reflects the proper order and enumeration. Reasons that are out of order or tables containing numerical gaps can lead to the wrong reasons being applied to transactions as they are canceled or conditionalized.
