    Re: make sure vs ensure

    Welcome to the forum, Jim.

    I have changed your thread title, as Mr. had nothing to do with your question.

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'

    In most cases there's no difference. Please write a complete sentence containing one of these verbs.

    Please start a new thread for your unrelated question.
