    difficulties... ran into

    Hello everybody!

    Would it be appropriate to make the following statement in a written response to a letter:

    Please detail the difficulties your company ran into in connection with our mentioning the cost in Item 9 on the bill.

    I am asking, in particular, about "difficulties your company ran into in conection with".

    Does it sound too perplexed or complicate?

    Thank you.

    No, it sounds pretty normal. But you could take your lead from the original letter.
    If it had said, "We ran into some difficulties due your mentioning the cost at Item 9", you will know you will be understood. How did the original letter make that specific complaint/point? Whether "ran into difficulties" is correct depends on what other company actually said.

    Ok. I just did not see the original letter. I'm an enterpreter and it so happened that my my colleague rushed into my room yelling for help with his eyes popped out. So I did my best to hepl him out, by his boss turned down the phrase I sugested.

    I'd better ask for an original leter next time!
