    I didn't have the foggiest idea until now.

    I was wondering if we should say
    "I didn't have the foggiest idea until now" or "I haven't had the foggiest idea until now".

    Thanks

    Re: I didn't have the foggiest idea until now.

    They both could be correct, depending on context. Do you have a wider context to offer?
