    Hi,

    can someone please explain me the difference between of and from.
    In which situations have I to use of/from?

    Thanks in advance!

    If you try a few sentences with 'of' and 'from', someone will tell you if you are using them correctly or not.

    Sorry for this late response. Here is a example:

    ...wish to advice as from Monday this office will no longer trade...
    ...wish to advice as of Monday this office will no longer trade...

    Which sentence is correct?

    Re: Prepositions of/from

    ...wish to advise as from Monday this office will no longer trade...
    ...wish to advise as of Monday this office will no longer trade...

    They are both useable in this context. Please note: 'advice' is a noun, 'advise' is the verb you need in the above.
