on stack overflow we can edit the questions and this problem is based on that.


I was asking problem A and got the solution of A but face a new problem B.

  • How do I mention (reference back) the problem A while telling problem B?


  • How do I mention (reference forth) the problem B when updating the question of problem A ?

Which one is the correct sentence while writing problem B ?

  1. prior to this question [ link of problem A ]

  2. along with this question [ link of problem A ]

it's seems like consecutive question, child question would be asked based on parent question.What we call these kind of questions?

  • "Moving with preceding problem" makes no sense to me out of context. You probably should compose several full sample sentences and put them into your question to allow others to better understand in which way do you intend to use the term. Commented Nov 27, 2014 at 5:24

Question B is a follow-up question to A.

Example usage:

Having solved my previous problem with SOAP, I now have a follow-up question. When I try using this WSDL service link, I get an error:

Another example usage:

Please help me with a follow-up question regarding authentication.

  • Yes follow-up is right word to tell third person altogether. What I am looking is the sentence structure to mention problem A while describing problem B.Hope you understand my need.
