My manager asked me what have you done last 15 days. Please send me document.

In that document I have written one point

Worked on finding errors on server.

I am not sure this sentence is correct grammatically. I am confuse at Worked and Finding. Could you please help me?

  • It sounds normal. From a grammar purist point of view it might be missing a word or two, like "I worked on finding errors on the server", but in a business English, bullet-point context it sounds fine as it is. – stevekeiretsu Feb 18 at 13:28
  • @stevekeiretsu - Thanks for you help. – r15 Feb 18 at 14:08

First of all, saying I worked on finding something is quite common. For instance, if you look into Corpus of Contemporary American English, you could find:

...from 1998 to 2000 Ivins worked on finding vaccines for anthrax...

Then, saying on the server is also idiomatic. For instance, usage of to find something on the server can be found in the Corpus too:

What happens is they find the emails on the server.

So, your final sentence may look as follows:

I've been working on finding errors on the server for the last 2 weeks.
