VB IDE problem?

I have a project with 25+ forms. Recently, when after I added a form, saved it and reloaded VB6 and then the project, I got the following message:

Conflicting names were found in 'C:\PetroBoard\Source Code\frmItemMstr.frm'. The name 'frmItemMstr' will be used.

Also, all my forms' code windows are open. I have to close all of them evrytime, something that takes a while.

Any ideas?

Open the frmItemMstr.frm file and look at the second line "Begin VB.Form <name>". The name should be 'frmItemMstr'. Then there's a line starting with "Attribute VB_Name = <name>". One of these two lines contains the wrong name, correct it, save the file and it will work just fine. ;)

The file with the .vbw extension contains information about which forms/classes etc that are open.
