i think the difference is that in the first sentence the notice asks you to check whether the report is attached or not and in the second one it asks you to find a report which is already attached to it.. in 2nd one it means that if you find the report, you find it attached ... in the 1st case it might be detached but its still there

Duh, i must be really slow since I keep looking for the monthly report! It should be - Please find attached the monthly report for December. Sorry for the stupidity - it's late!

I think the last sounds better.It's just a matter of describing.

The answer:it's the word the.It's placed before&after the word attached.
How about a 3rd option:(Please find the monthly report,attached)

The second one indeed is smoother and more definitive and matter of fact. Also the word in your sentemce should be DifferenCE.

They are two different sentences. What is the difference between the two?

Eliminate the word "find".

Use the word "see".

You could rearrange the sentence to say "please find the monthly report attached"
