    Questions about "that" and "have/had"

    Hi all,

    Which of the following are correct? I am confused when do I need to use "that" and "have/had" (as present/past perfect tense)

    1. The form that I sent to you is not formatted correctly.
    2. The form that I have (or had) sent to you is not formatted correctly.
    3. The form I sent to you is not formatted correctly.
    4. The form I have (or had) sent to you is not formatted correctly.

    Thanks and best regards,
    Trend7

    1. The form that I sent to you is not formatted correctly. Herewith the correct form, and I apologize for any inconvenience.

    Past tense, since this is a completed, finished action in the past.

    3. The form I sent to you is not formatted correctly.
    This is also correct, but slightly less formal. In a formal letter, (1) is preferable.
