-          As seen above, you need to select the Start Cheque Number and End Cheque Number. Suppose you have to cancel payments issued via 3 Cheques: 000121,000122 & 000123, then you can give "Start Cheque Number=000121" and "End Cheque Number = 000123".

-          If you want to cancel only one Cheque Payment, then enter that Cheque Number in the "Start Cheque Number" field and leave "End Cheque Number" as Blank.

-          Select whether the issued Cheque is a Normal Cheque or Multi City Cheque.
