  1. When you are referring to an attachment (document, file or any other object), which sentence is better?

    1. “Please find attached the report on the new marketing plan.”
    2. “Please find the attached report on the new marketing plan.”

    The answer to this question depends on your point of view and the reason you want to ask for the report.

    • If you are referring to the document as a whole, then the first sentence is correct. The reason for this is that when you say the word “attached,” it means that the document is actually in your possession.
    • If you are only referring to the cover page, then the second sentence is correct. The reason for this is that when you say the word “attached,” it means that the document itself is attached to something else, like a file or envelope.
