Perhaps someone can help me out here. When writing a letter does the 'enclosed' line come before or after you closing line e.g,

-------------------------------
Yours Faithfully,


Hootenanny

Enc. Document

--------------------------------
or
--------------------------------
Enc. Document

Yours Faithfully,


Hootenanny

--------------------------------

Does any body know? Does it really matter?

Enclosure (and cc, bcc) comes after the closing, below one's name.

In a letter/email, I often mention, please find enclosed . . . .

Thank you Astronuc :biggrin:

I still love that we use the abbreviation "cc" even though I haven't even seen a sheet of carbon paper, let alone a carbon copy, in I can't recall how long. :biggrin:
