Can I use the following question in formal letter?
As per your request....
Well, yes, you can use the compound preposition "as per" in this context. But it's really formal, almost icy. I had to put on a sweater just to make it through this response.
I've seen this used in business or legal letters a lot, and while it is definitely formal and not warm, I wouldn't call it icy.
Me neither. It's standard business speak, at least in New York City. Maybe not so much in other, more creative fields.
Yes. "As per your request" is perfectly-stated, and I find to be beautifully professional and respectful.
Separate names with a comma.
