    pls correct

    Is this a correct sentence:
    "I have some work with you."
    Can it also be said:
    "I have to work with you."

    Which one is correct and what are the other ways to say? Pls help.

    What is the context in which you want to use them?

    Re: pls correct

    What do you mean by "having some work with"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: pls correct

    It's impossible to know exactly what you mean, because you cannot describe it.
    "I have been assigned to work with you."
    "We have to work together."
    "I have some work that I want you to help me with."
    "The boss wants you to work with me."
    "It's been decided that you and I will work together on this project."

    I don't know if any of those fit your context.

    Re: pls correct

    I am asking in the context that 'a person needs other person's help' or 'he has something to discuss with him.'

    In that context, I consider both expressions unintelligible and therefore incorrect.
