A problem compiling......DFM error...

 I have an application that has 2 forms, each with its own .pas file.  This was working fine for quite some time, but I made a change a while back to add a 3rd form.  Now when I compile this, I get the error message saying "Error (0) File Not Found 'Unit1.DFM'
I do not have a Unit1.pas or Unit1.dcu, I think that may have been the old name, and it was so long ago I don't remember what I did to this, but I can't get past this error.  I tried renaming each of the current DFM's (3 of them) to unit1.dfm and recompiled to see if I could solve the problem (just guessing/trial and error), but that didn't work.  Can anyone help on this?
               Thanks

I have noticed that there is a bug in Delphi that sometimes results in the name of the unit and the name included in the uses clause messed up. This always seems to happen during the process of saving the form after you have already saved it as unit1.pas.

Look in your uses clauses - do you see unit1 in it? If so change it to the correct name of the unit. (there will be a .PAS and .DFM file that don't appear in the uses clause...)

If you are going to try renaming them then make sure that you rename both the .DFM and the .PAS files in unison.

Cheers,

Raymond.

Cha-ching! That took care of it. :-)

It had the old unit name listed (unit1.pas), as you mentioned, and I just removed it to make this work.  This does appear to be a small bug in D3. I'll have to be careful how I rename/save the units from now on, and make sure I don't get caught by this one
again.  Thanks a bunch.
