    What one is correct?

    Here is the situation:

    I work in shift, and i would like to exchange my shift with my colleague for some personal reason, but somehow, it is solved and I want to inform my colleague to ignore about my request. So kindly let me know which one is correct and why the wrong one is wrong.

    a please ignore my previous request of change of shift duty.

    b please ignore my previous request of shift duty's change

    c any better suggestion?

    The reason of my confusion is I always feel that A's B is identical with B of A. An explanation on the difference between them is highly appreciated

    many thanks

    With reference to my request to change shifts, I no longer need to change so please ignore my request.

    If you are actually exchanging shifts, perhaps "swap" would be a better word than "change", but either sounds fine.

    Please ignore my previous request to swap/change shifts.

    I don't think you need to use "shift duty" - "shift" alone is sufficient in this case.

    I have changed the last part of your sentence adding the infinitive verb "to swap" and the thing which you wanted to swap, "the shift".

    I'm not a teacher.
