    About the word "outstanding"

    Hi all,

    I just want to know if I can write this in a letter.
    " Your XXX(documents) is outstanding, please submit the particular to us as soon as possible.
    cos I thought outstanding means very good and it can be used in payment.

    However , can it be used in missing documents?

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi, and welcome to Using English.

    Please see the second definition: Outstanding - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary

    There are a few other problems with your sentence.

    Your XXX(documents) is outstanding. Please submit the particulars to us as soon as possible.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
