Please check which is correct: "IN" or "ON"

I would be grateful if you could help me in/on this matter.

Is there any diffrence between the two?
How about "with this matter"?

Hello Grammar Geek, are yu saying that it is appropriate to use 'with' than 'on' and 'in'?
What's wrong with 'on' and 'in'? are they wrong. I'm just curious because I've seen lot of people using both 'on' and 'in'.
Pls pls kindly explain.

Thanks!
I know I've heard "on." I'm not sure I've heard "in."

I don't think there's a major difference between the with and the on.

Hi guys,

I would be grateful if you could help me in/on this matter.
Here's another opinion.

'With' and 'in' both seem fine to me.

If you help me 'in' this matter, it suggests a bit more to me that you are going to get personally involved, eg perhaps dealing with other people.

With 'with', it sounds like you might possibly deal with me and no-one else.

'On' sounds a little bit more odd, or at least uncommon, to me.

I've been reading and typing for years in business e-mails the form "on this matter".

Maybe this would help you.
