    Re: Is this sentence is correct

    That changes the meaning, Lotus. "There are few" means the product is scarce. "There are a few" means the product is available from several sources.

    The sentence is grammatical as it is. We don't know whether it actually says what Abirkhan wants to say.

    But the sentence has two problems:

    1. It makes no sense. Projects can't be attached. We can guess at what Abirkhan means, but the sentence doesn't say it. A project description can be attached. A project report can be attached. A project summary can be attached. A document about the project can be attached. A video of the project can be attached. But a project can't be attached.

    2. There has to be a period. Without a period, question mark, or exclamation point, a string of words is not a sentence.

    Re: Is this sentence is correct

    I'll let the OP respond. Only he/she knows the intended meaning. We can only guess at this point.

    Electronic documents (in different formats and medium) can be produced projects.

    I've done projects in PowerPoint, Excel, etc.

    Of course, the OP could mean the project that is described within the document.
