    Re: Which sentence is correct?

    Possibly two different meanings - the first could be that nothing happened with the first order so they sent in a second request.
    The second would could mean that, happy with the first order, they decided to order more of the same thing.

    A better title would have been The above order.

    Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.
