Project build problem in Visual Studio

Hi,
My VC++6.0 projects has lot of files ! Recently I started facing the following problem. When ever I build the project after doing some changes in one of the source files (not Rebuild all), my entire projects starts building. Even if i change a single CPP, i can see all the CPPbeing compiled.. why is this happening .. i am not even changing a common header file...

can some one help me ?

thanks
Prashanth

Hi fidodido,
      Check for the dates of the files which are included in the project work space.

is your *.cpp file included in some other file?
what are your project settings for precompiled headers?

Hey,
you are right ! some of the files of my projects (header files)where having a future date ! this happened because when i copied these files from another location, for some reason I had changed my system date !
so though i was not changing these file, since they had date later than that being compiled (today's date), all my files used to compile !

thanks
