    Has to be

    What is the difference between "has to be adjusted in next order" and "need to be adjusted in next order"?

    Also, please advise if I can write "by Sunday" instead of "on Sunday"

    If yes, why do we write "by" ?

    Please put these phrases into complete sentences which we can consider. I can say from the fragments that you need a definite article before next​.

    Did you notice that GoesStation told you in post #2 that you need the definite article before "next"?

    The definite article is the word "the".
    The two indefinite articles are the words "a" and "an".
