What's going on?

I have a VB6 project.  I saved interum copies as I went along.  I finished the program, then made a different copy and renamed that and made considerable changes to the new program as a different project.   Now all the changes I made are in the original.  I figured that I must have goofed up somehow, so I got out an "interum copy" of the original and the changes are in there too.  As a test I added a line to one and it appeared in all the rest.  This is a disaster.   I have Source Safe on the machine, but I didn't add it to Source Safe as far as I know.   When I saved the original to a different name Sourse Safe asked me if I wanted to add it and I said NO.

What's going on??

I assume you did copy all your files, including the project (vbp) file
In this vbp file the names of the other files including their path are listed

You should have altered the vbp file manually or create a new vbp file

corvanderlinden,

This is a very small program.  Only 1 form (frmMain), no modules, no class modules.
Oh, I think I see what you mean.  The Main Form is a file and it is attached to the project but not inside the project, so when I saved the project as a different name, I was actually then sharing the Main Form between the 2 copies.
Am I getting it?

So if I restore the original from tape, I will destroy the changes I made to the Main Form and have the same problem in reverse, right?

I will save the Main Form as something else before I restore.

Thanks,

Mac
