Is the OBJ file important? Why?

I am writing a VB5 project which makes extensive use of classes, my first serious use of VB classes. The is a .OBJ file (MY_PROJ.OBJ) which has been created, but I can't for the life tell what it is for. I made a copy of the project directory with out the OBJ file -- everything seems to work OK, and the file has not been recreated.

Question: what is in the OBJ file? How important is it? Should I keep it in Visual Source Safe with the rest of my source code?

Thanks in advance...

The OBJ file is created when you compile your project.
It should be erased provided your compile had no problem.

You don't have to keep it.

Looking at my OBJ file a little closer, I see it has not been modified in many months. Not that it really matters, but any idea why when I recompile my app the old OBJ file was not removed?

Does it have the exact name as a module in your project? If so I have no idea, I'd erase it and forget it.
