Can't open Project Source: Why?

I tend to develop my projects in isolation, and only add them to release
code when I know they are fully robust.  Works well- at least until now.

I have a project that must access a high security database, separate
from my main data sources.  Developed the thing- then incorporated my
mainline code, which basically amounts to a Data Module that contains
all the regular data access, and a rather complex logon form.

Trying to link generates the error:

Unresolved external _DB in FrontEnd.obj

(FrontEnd is the project code).  Now, for the life of me, I can't figure
out why I can't include a DataModule that works well in all my other

More puzzling is that I cannot open FrontEnd.cpp.  When I try to open
it, the source editor disappears for a couple of seconds, and then
reappears on the same code module as before.

I've tried all the regular juju: rebuilding, deleting the .tds and .il*
files- even creating new projects using the same forms.  Still can't see
the project file, so can't see why it doesn't recognize my DataModule.

Any ideas are most welcome.

Re:Can't open Project Source: Why?

maybe you are including 'main project source' file twice ( maybe 2 such
files with different names ). That's a source with USE* macros.
