    more documents

    Did I use the word "more" right? Are these sentences right?


    1) We received some school documents from you from 2010 to 2015. We are wondering if you have more documents to send to us?


    2) Do you have further documents to send to us?

    Re: more documents

    It's fine to use 'more' in that context because the sentence sounds quite informal.

    If you'd like to use 'further' I wouldn't use 'wondering' though, as it is more formal:

    We would like to know if you are planning to send further documents.

    Re: more documents

    The second sentence in extract 2 is a statement, not a question. It should end with a period ("full stop" in BrE).
