Dear Friends,

Is it correct to say " Sorry for having sent you the wrong information" (referring to a past action) Because they did actually send the wrong info in an e mail.
As far as I know Sorry for sending the wrong info is right but Im not sure about the first sentence.
Thanks in advance for your help!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Have a great weekend! Smile

Yes, it is correct.  Having +past participle acts as a gerund.  Look: "Sorry for having broken your vase." "Sorry for breaking your vase."  In both cases, the speaker is sorry that he/she broke the other person s vase.
