    what or that

    Which is the correct sentence and why?
    1/ I don't remember something important that she told me.
    2/ I don't remember something important what she told me.
    Thanks.

    Thanks!
    I think it's the place of the relative pronoun "that".

    Re: what or that

    You could say I don't remember what she told me (what = the thing that), but not something important what she told me.
