    Question After process completion, the financial administrator changes the status to Processed

    Hi,

    Below is excerpted from an Oracle document.

    After the time sheet has been approved and status is changed to Acceptable, a financial
    administrator reviews the time sheet. If the financial administrator approves the time sheet, it is
    then processed for back-office reporting. After process completion, the financial administrator
    changes the status to Processed. Alternatively, the financial administrator can reject the time sheet,
    which is then returned to the consultant for modification.
    Can I say "After process completed" in this situation?

    Thanks.

    No. You could say After the process is completed.

    What about "After processing completed"? Is it correct?

    But I don't understand why I can't use "After processing". The "processing" is a gerund, and "after" can be followed by a gerund. So, what's wrong with it? I just don't understand.

    If added "the" in the front of the noun/gerund, it just becomes a "noun". I know "After [noun]" is correct.

    Please help to explain, thanks.

    You are referring to something specific - the processing done by a particular officer. So you need a definite article.
    The clause is not complete without the verb "is".

    I have just used the following keyword "After processing completed site:.microsoft.com" searched from www.bing.com, and I found the following sentences from a Microsoft document:

    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh231087.aspx

    The value of the CDC State variable needs to be maintained in a persistent storage, it should be read before starting CDC processing and should be saved with the current state after processing completed. The task of loading and storing of the CDC state can be handled by the SSIS developer but the CDC Control component can automate this task by maintaining the CDC State value in a database table.
    Microsoft also used the "after processing completed". Please help to explain what is the difference between them. Thanks.

    Question 2:
    1). Please help to explain what is the difference between them.
    2). Please help to explain what the difference is between them.

    Should I use #2 or #1?

    The difference is that the replies you have been given by our members are written in better English than the examples you quoted.

    Use #2.

    Thanks.

    For the original phrase from Oracle, the "After process completion", is it wrong based on your replies?

    I would write 'Please explain the difference between them'.
