    Default is this a correct sentence and what does it mean?

    I can have you met her?
    And please tell me that how can we make this sentence into another ways? (i didn't want to go to school but i was going) i mean to say (i was going to school unwillingly)

    I can have you meet her. What's the context?

    thanks for your reply.
    and the sentence (i can have u met her) is in passive "have some thing done" like " i have my car repaired" and regarding these sentences i want to know if we say " i can introduce u with her" in this way "i can have u met her"

    I don't think so. When you say 'have smth done' you mean that somebody will perform the action for the speaker's benefit. 'I can have you met by her' doesn't sound like a correct sentence. However you can say 'I can have her meet you'.

    It's hard to say if you don't provide more context.
    Grammatically speaking, you can say I can have you meet her, but when - I can't say.

    I went to school, even though I didn't want to;
    I went to school against my will
    ,
    etc.
