    Question 'I have gone through below details '

    Is it right to say "I have gone through below details" whenever you are replying to someone on the information he/she has provided you.

    It would be better to say "I have gone through the details below".

    And even if you want to use "below" as an adjective coming before "details" - a piece of rather dated official jargon - "details" still need their "the".

    (Also, as a writer, you need to consider whether the reader cares exactly where the details are; is it enough to say 'I've been through these details' or something of the kind - perhaps as little as 'I've had a look at this'? I'm not saying it always is enough, but you should always think about adding extra stuff for your reader to interpret.)

    Note also, the word order here:

    Ex: ... above details ...
    Ex: ... details below ...
