Hi,

It's "Him".

It has to be an object after a preposition.

The word "he" is a subject and therefore it can't be "he".
To victorycountry,

How about this sentence,

"This company has no objection to HIS joining other company.''

Is it also wrong??

Hi, temico.

Please have a look here,

Hello champers

This company has no objection to HE/HIM joining in other company

Quite apart from the he/him question, this sentence isn't correct. It should be either:

a) 'This company has no objection to him joining another company.'

or:

b) 'This company has no objection to his joining another company.'

Either a) or b) is fine.

To MrP,

Re: 'This company has no objection to his joining another company.'

You are right in your corrections. I deleted the "in" in the sentence but forgot to change "other" to "another". When I realised my omission, it was too late because I couldn't edit my post.

I wonder if you approve of posters referring to websites which have no bearing, whatsoever, to prove their points or to the validity of their arguments, thereby wasting the time of others??

Hello Temico

The edit button does disappear distressingly quickly, on occasion.

On the question of the webpage, I hesitate to speak for another member, but I believe v/c was referring to the section headed 'Using Possessives with Gerunds'. I would guess that this was intended as a helpful response to your question about whether 'his' could be used instead of 'him'.

Best wishes
MrP
MrP,

If you don't mind, I would like to state that "that helpful response" is equivalent to the reply, "Go and check with my mother." when you ask a girl if she was coming to a party or not!!
No one is obliged to offer help here, Temico; and no one is obliged to take what is offered.

But even in the latter case, 'thank you' is the customary reply.
