1. The check was not cancelled before the given date: deleting uncancelled checks makes bank reconciliation impossible.

2. The check is not in a closed period: the trial and final close processes give incorrect balances if checks are deleted from an open period.

Note: This process must be run successfully before attempting to run the process to delete old paid vouchers from the Maintenance, Delete Old menu.
