    Vocabulary/Grammar Issues

    Hi everyone! I would like to ask if the sentence is correct:

    I have to LEAVE the process of recalculation as an audit evidence/documentation.



    1. Does the above sentence make sense?
    2. Would LEAVE be appropriate? As in I want to RECORD the process for evidence or future reference.
    3. Aside from using record, what other terms can I use?
    4. Or what would be the best sentence to describe the situation (appropriate for an auditor's language)

    Thanks!

    You would be better to use "record". "I have to record the process of recalculation as evidence for the audit" would seem to me to be the best way to say it.

    bhai corrected this in his rewrite, but you may not have noticed this particular point. Neither "evidence" nor "documentation" should be countable, so "an audit evident" or "an audit documentation" doesn't work.
    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.

    Thanks bhai and barb! And yes, you were right. I have been using evidence or documentation as a countable noun until you made this point now. I just hit two birds with one stone!
