    'I haven't started the job yet. I'll do it tomorrow morning.'

    (Don't leave a space before full stops etc.)

    I would say:

    I told him:"I did not (have not) started the job yet. I will do it tomorrow morning."

    I told him:"I did not (have not) started the job yet. I will do it tomorrow at 9 in the morning."

    I told him that I had not started the job yet and I would do it the next morning."

    I told him that I had not started the job yet and I would do it at 9 the next morning."

    But those are just my suggestions. I am sure that if you are talking to him at the moment you don't need to say "next morning", just say "tomorrow morning" because the next day is simply tomorrow.

    commenting on prepositions is a crucial task. I am waiting for others' posts.

    Rover, I didn't notice you were replying to this thread. I also wanted to elaborate the problem and include situations under which we have to say "in the next morning" or "the next morning".
