Which one of the following is correct -

Please find attached the document consisting of code.
Please find the attached document consisting of code.
Please find attached the file consisting of code.

None of this is actually grammatically incorrect. None of them feels quite natural. I have occasion to send files of code with some frequency, and I would not write any of these in a business (or personal) email. I would be inclined to write:

  • Please find attached a file containing code.
  • Attached is a file containing code.
  • Attached is a file with the code. (Assuming other context had identified the code specifically.)
  • Please find attached a file containing the code. (Same assumption.)

The word "document" could be used in place of "file" in any of the above sentences, that is a matter of style. "Consisting of" seems wordy, but is not incorrect.
