What's the difference between enclosed and attached?
When to use enclosed or attached?
Approved answer (verified by Ruslana)
Enclosed in this package are photos of two cars, a motorcycle, three computers, and a horse.
Attached means "it's connected to."
Attached to this document is copy of my I.D., insurance card and birth certificate.
(Common office items used to attach other papers to a document are staples and clips. That's why in email, the symbol used for attaching a file to a document is the "paper clip.")
I just have a correction to make in my second example sentence:
Attached to this document is A copy of my I.D., insurance card and birth certificate.
A small extra comment, off the main point..
my I.D., insurance card and birth certificate.
You are referring here to three things, but insurance card possibly and birth certificate definitely are considered to be ID. You seem to be suggesting that ID refers to something else.
Hi. Yes. Sorry. I was using ID in place of a photo "identification card," like the ones issued in some offices or a driver's license.
People are waiting to help.
