As Of

I"d appreciate your assistance in helping me particularly understvà how lớn use the phrase "as of" properly.

What is the proper interpretation of the following sentence?

"I need you to get me all transactions as of January 23rd"

That I need all transactions from the beginning of time (so to lớn speak) till January 23rd, orThat I need all transactions from January 23rd khổng lồ now?

Would "as at" be more appropriate to express (1)?

Would "as from" be more appropriate to express (2)?

Joel is mistaken when he says that as of means "up to and including a point of time," although it is often used to mean so.

Bạn đang xem: As of

As of designates the point in time from which something occurs. So as of some point would mean from the date specified onward.

However, his answering of the best way to say each phrase is spot on.

One may use either until or up to to mean the time before which something occurs (remaining ambiguous about whether the date is inclusive sầu or not).

And since is a fine choice.

So far as as from--this is a perfectly good expression in donghocititime.com. It has roughly the same connotation as as of except that it often holds the time before và the time after in contrast.

As OF implies everything up to & including a particular point in time.

As AT is similar to as of, và could be used synonymously. As at has a connotation of a snapshot. You might say transactions as of but balance as at.

As FROM is not an idiom in donghocititime.com as far as I have sầu ever heard.

In order khổng lồ be more clear, you could use different language altogether:

I need all transactions up to và including January 23rd.

I need all transactions since January 23rd.

AS OF would mean "at a certain time onward". AS AT would mean "at a precise time of event".AS FROM would mean "at a certain time onward" just like AS OF, but I still don"t quite get it.

That leads me khổng lồ go back & use SINCE. Much simpler và people use it in writings & speeches. So, why not?

You can argue that as from needn"t exist, or that it"s silly, but you can"t argue that it"s not an expression in use. From ODO:

chiefly British Used to indicate the time or date from which something starts:

It is most commonly used in referring to the starting date of a period at which something applies, or rather will apply, since the reference is usually khổng lồ a time in the future at the time of writing.

As at, means any occurrence previous till a given time period, or date, whereas, as of, means any occurrence from a given time period or date onwards. The former is a destination whereas the latter is a starter. E.g. 1. Ubịt had left office as at 5 o"cloông xã I arrived.2. The parties herelớn, have sầu caused this agreement khổng lồ be duly executed as of 27th of April, năm ngoái.

You have a valid point.

This definition of as of is given by Wiktionary:

From, at, or until a given time.

Most dictionaries give the first two senses, but Garner disagrees:

But as of now does not mean "at present"; rather it means "up to lớn the present time".... is today totally unobjectionable in AmE.
