Wikipedia:as of

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

What is the proper interpretation of the following sentence?

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

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

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

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

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

Bạn đang xem: Wikipedia: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 lớn say each phrase is spot on.

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

And since is a fine choice.

So far as as from--this is a perfectly good expression in au-79.net. It has roughly the same connotation as as of except that it often holds the time before & the time after in contrast.

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

As AT is similar khổng lồ as of, and 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 au-79.net 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 lớn 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 lớn go bachồng và use SINCE. Much simpler & 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 khổng lồ indicate the time or date from which something starts:

It is most commonly used in referring khổng lồ the starting date of a period at which something applies, or rather will apply, since the reference is usually lớn 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. Ubít had left office as at 5 o"clock I arrived.2. The parties hereto lớn, have caused this agreement lớn be duly executed as of 27th of April, 2015.

You have sầu a valid point.

This definition of as of is given by Wiktionary:

From, at, or until a given time.

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

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