    tenses

    hello everyone.

    I hope you can enlighten me.

    problem: A isn't sure if she had told B about her next travel.
    so she ask :

    question: Which of the following phrases is/are correct?

    Did I tell you that I would be going to Italy next week?
    Did I tell you that I'll be going to Italy next week?
    Have I told you that I would be going to Italy next week?
    Have I told you that I'll be going to Italy next week?

    I assume that between (will be going) and (will go) don't make any difference in this case as well as (would go) and (would be going).

    please help.I need advice.
    thanks

    You can also say:
    Have I told you/Did I tell you (that) I'm going etc
    Have I told you/Did I tell you (that) I was going etc (This could also mean that I'm not going any more, it's been cancelled.)

    Note: You can't say I will go etc
