Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Hi Friendz
my submission to this is -

Submittal is informations provided to other parties and it attracts some actions ( review, study, comment, confirm etc etc.) to be followed by the recipient.

while, transmittal is merely for the information purpose and in normal circumstances does not abide by following actions.

May be one and the same thing, may be different!!!!!!!!

What they are really depends on what you use them for.

Transmittal would normally be a record of anything you send to somone else, eg letters, etc

Submittal would normally be a record of anything you submit to somone else for example, for approval - and may have a transmittal to go with it.
