    Thumbs down "on hand" or "in hand"?

    What's the difference between ""on hand" and "in hand"?
    Is it all right that I say"I have this problem on hand?"

    Re: "on hand" or "in hand"?

    "On hand" means available, as in "We have a great deal of merchandise on hand."
    "In hand" means that you have the situation (or problem) under control, that is, "in hand."
