    find out/find

    Hi

    I saw this sentence in an email. would you please tell me whether its wrong or not?

    "Please find out attached file"

    I think it is better to say find instead of find out

    Thanks

    Re: find out/find

    You are correct; 'find out' is wrong.

    "Please find out attached file"

    Is this sentence okay if out is deleted? I would say, "Please find the attached file," "Please find the attachment file," or "Please find the attachment." Are these three correct?
