Cancelled change

If a change is cancelled without starting the activity, however by the time the change is cancelled the change window starts, will that be considered a failed change or an unsuccessful change?

Answer:
I think you should not mix failed/unsuccessful changes with cancelled changes. With cancelled change - actually nothing happened (no resources used, no money/time spent, no new/changed functionality, etc.). So, if you have possibility, define "cancelled" as one of the statuses change can have. And, investigate why change was raised and cancelled, afterwards. It could be start of improvement initiative.
