    'Below' as an attribute

    Is it grammatically correct to use 'below' as an attribute to nouns?
    e.g. "Please consult the below information" vs. "Please consult the information below"

    Re: 'Below' as an attribute

    Welcome to the forum.

    The second is correct. The second is increasingly found but is better written as "Please consult the following information".

    Re: 'Below' as an attribute

    Thank you very much! Do I understand it right that the first one is wrong (at least in written speech)?

    Sorry - in my reply I meant to say that The first one is increasingly found but is better written or said as "Please consult the following information".
