This may sound silly, but I've two independent applications both developed in visual basic 6.0. In both the applications i have same global variables and these variables are extensively used in these applications. Now is there anyway I can merge these two projects into one without changing the variable names in either one of them.

If these variables are the same and mean the same in both programs, then you can do as suggested by rondeauj.  Otherwise, you will have to do a global search and replace on one of the projects and then add the two projects together.  If you do not want separate exe's (which the group project will create) then you will have to import the forms and modules and classes separately into one project (I suspect this is what you want.)
