Hi,

May I know is "Please find attached" an old-fashioned English expression? Should we use "Please see attached" better?

Hello

Thanks for posting your question to the board.

In modern business writing, we would now use the phrases "I/We have attached...." or "You will find attached..." Both these phrases are more personal and less formal/official-sounding than the other two phrases which are now considered to be a litte out-of-date.

Hope this helps.

Regards
