What is an adjective for the word "reference"? I want to write something as:

For your reference convenience, I have attached the following documents.

However, clearly, "reference" is not an adjective for this sentence to be syntactically right.

What would be an adjective to the word "reference" to tell the idea that an action was done so that the recipient can refer to something conveniently?

The adjective from reference is referential, but it wouldn't be appropriate here. I'd have thought 'for your convenience' would have been enough, but another formulation sometimes used is 'for ease of reference'.

    I agree with Barrie; 'for your convenience' seems sufficient. If you really wanted to include reference, you could move it: For your convenience, I have attached the following reference documents.
