    when/once

    Do these below all work and have the same meaning?

    I'll become nervous when I see her tomorrow.
    I'll become nervous when I have seen her tomorrow.
    I'll become nervous once I see her tomorrow.
    I'll become nervous once I have seen her tomorrow.

    Re: when/once

    Of all your choices, I think this is the best because it means that you will become nervous at the moment that you see her:
    I'll become nervous when I see her tomorrow.
    It depends on what you mean to say, however. To me, all of these could be grammatically correct, but both once and have seen imply that you will get nervous at various times after seeing her:
    I'll become nervous when I have seen her tomorrow.
    I'll become nervous once I see her tomorrow.
    I'll become nervous once I have seen her tomorrow.
    I hope that makes sense to you!
