Thank you all for your replys.

Sometimes my questions may sound silly. Please don't laugh at me.

===Please have forms filled out prior to (before ) approaching th window

? Can I substitue prior to with before?

? I know prior to is a kind of formal usage. but is there any other
differences between this two ?

You could say 'before' there. They mean the same, but, as you say, 'prior to' is more formal. :lol:
