    Question preposition + amount of

    I am not sure about the preposition in a sentence like this:
    We are referring to your invoice to/in the amount of $5,000.

    Re: preposition + amount of

    'Your invoice for $5,000', according to the Oxford dictionary.

    Re: preposition + amount of

    If you must use "amount" then use "in the amount of".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
