In brief, I want to write an e-mail inquiring an agency as when will they submit the work. This is what I have written. I am not quiet sure whether it is the proper way of writing the mail. I would appreciate if you could provide feedback as to how can I write it in correct grammar.

Dear Xyz,

Hope you had a great weekend. I wish to inquire as when will you submit the files regarding the project.

Many thanks, Oklao Sds

Is it grammatically acceptable?

  • "I hope you had a great weekend. I wish to inquire when you submit the files regarding the project," seems better. – user114 Mar 3 '13 at 23:47

    @Carlo_R, no, you need an auxiliary verb there: I wish to inquire when you will submit – StoneyB Mar 4 '13 at 0:03

Its pretty close.

I hope you had a great weekend. I wish to inquire as to when you will submit the files regarding the project.

"Hope" by itself is a bit too informal for a business situation.
"as to" is basically the same as "regarding".
"you will" since this clause is not a question. If it were, you could use "will you".

  • Unless you use British English - then it's "enquire". – nxx Jan 13 '14 at 22:06
