@ Malvolio My point is: Will + Verb(inf.) / Will + Have + Verb(P.P)

@StoneyB You mean that both sentences are correct? I wonder if you would mind explaining what reference time is.

comment “At this time yesterday, I had gone” vs. “by this time yesterday, I had gone”
But, the time expression which "At this time yesterday" being used in this instance does not comply, if you like, with "Past perfect". I would appreciate that you give me a straight forward answer, apart from the context and "By this time yesterday" is better. Consider the sentence as an answer to a question. Question: Bla bla bla? Answer: By this time yesterday, I had gone to work. In this case, according to GRAMAMR, is this sentence correct or incorrect? Thank you very much indeed, guys.
