    Я не знаю, сколько он ходил вчера.
    I don't know how long/how far he was walking yesterday

    Я не знаю, где он ходил вчера.
    I don't know where he was walking yesterday
    as in: я ходил в городе (I was walking in the town (not TO town))

    Я не знаю, что он ходил вчера.

    It works, beleive me . Maybe I can't give correct translations, but I'll try.

    1. Я не знаю, где он ходил вчера
    I don't know where he was walking yesterday.

    2. Я не знаю, сколько он ходил вчера.
    I don't know how much time he was walking yesterday

    As for "что", if there was no "не", it would be
    Я знаю, что он ходил вчера
    and it's absolutely correct.

    P.S. Kalinka
    My English isn't so good, зато с русским все в порядке ))
    I'll be very thankful, if you correct my mistakes.

    pranki is right. All the four variants are correct. I'll try to shed some light on it.

    1. Я не знаю, куда он вчера ходил.
    =I don't know where he went yesterday.

    2. Я не знаю, что он ходил вчера.
    =I don't know that he went (somewhere) yesterday.

    3. Я не знаю, где он ходил вчера.
    =I don't know where (=to what place) he went yesterday.

    The answer to this sentence could be:
    Он ходил вчера по полу = He went on the floor yesterday.
    Он ходил по центру Москвы вчера = He wandered around downtown Moscow yesterday.

    4. Я не знаю, сколько он ходил вчера.
    =I don't know how much time he spent walking yesterday.

    Is it clear now? All of these sentences are grammatically correct but that doesn't mean that they're natural.

    I think all of them are natural except for the second one.

    how long have you been studying Russian? Perhaps, you mentioned it in your previous posts but I don't remember now.

    About 7 months of hard-out study. I have however, always known the alphabet and the basics "здравствуйте, как тебя зовут etc" because my mum speaks some Russian so i guess it wasn't as out there for me when I first starting studying seriously as for others, but hey i'm pretty pleased with my progress thus far!

    That's very good that you can answer 42 questions correctly after 7 months of studying! I applaud you!
