    Neither is correct without a closing punctuation mark. You can use the "Edit Post" function to add the missing marks. Remember to put one after "Thanks" too.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Once you've punctuated it as emsr noted, they would then both be correct, and have the same meaning.
