    While/when you were out

    While you were out, there was a call for you.

    Is it possible to use "When" in the above sentence?

    Thanks.

    Re: While/when you were out

    Yes, it is – with little difference in meaning.

    Read more about slight differences by typing when/while in the Google Custom Search box for links to previous answers to this question.

    Thanks Rover

    Where can we find the Google Custom Search box in using English.com? I can only see the "Advanced search" box on the right top.

    It is above and slightly left of the Advanced Search box. If you can't see it, please post a message in the Support Forum, giving details of what type of computer you are using, which operating system and which browser. If possible, post a screenshot of what your screen looks like.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
