All cheques processed through accounts payable are kept on file to assist you in balancing your bank account when the statement arrives.  This report is sorted in cheque number order and prints the source (automatic or manual/miscellaneous cheques), the cheque number, the vendor or payee (if miscellaneous cheque), and the date and amount of the cheque.
