    Will/Would

    I am getting confusion in using will/would in the below sentence.What is the difference in meaning between these two sentences?

    By that time we would come to know about everything about our work.
    By that time we will come to know about everything about our work.

    The use of 'will' or 'would' here depends on the context, ie. factors that are not described in the sentences. Besides, strictly it should be: "By that time we would/will have come to know ..."
    Is this a sentence of your own making? It might be better to post a sentence written by a competent native speaker which confuses you in its use of 'will/would'.

    Re: Will/Would

    Yes. These are my own sentences which I spoke in the conversation. I can understand your point but the most of my questions are actually my doubts which i got during my conversation.
