    ALL vs EVERYTHING

    Could anyone be so kind as to tell me whether both of these sentences are correct in grammatical context or not, if that's the case, are they interchangeable in this meaning, in other words do they both convey the same idea:

    A) I'd like to know EVERYTHING about the incident.
    B) I'd like to know ALL about the incident


    Thanks in advance,[/b]

    They're very similar. However, if I wanted all the details for a report, I'd use 'everything'.
