Start a new project, add a new project and save.

As Anthony says

Start a New Project and Save it.

Go to File and Add a New Project and Save that too. This time Group Project will also be saved.

from Next time onwards you can open the Group Project.

Yes, as Anthony and Narayan said it is quite simple to make a group projects. This way..

Open a New project, save it. This is Project1
Therefore to add another project, go to Project Explorer and right click to add an existing project or a new project. Add more projects if necessary.

Makes more sense to group a project when the individual projects are related in some way or the other.

"Group projects" can also be considered if you want to test out something(acts as a scratch pad). For example, if one is making an ocx control it makes sense to add a new project to the ActiveX control project wherin one can test the ocx control before actually compiling the ocx.

Here's a link which can give you some insight about 'Multiple Projects':

I hope this gives you a better picture.

The Group Project is also a good idea when working on a DLL and EXE at the same time. For the same reasons as priya gave when working on an ocx.

Do you want to add a <u>'Related file'</u>, say a txt file or a doc file, ie different file other than form , module ,ocx etc, then you can do so as follows:

-Go to Project Explorer(Ctrl R)
-Right Click on Project1 and Choose Add File...
-browse to whatever file you wish to add to a project. choose the type of files as "*.*" and then select the file which you wish to add to the project and the most important thing is to "check" the checkbox at the left hand corner of the dialog box which says "Add as Related document" otherwise it will add to the module.

Hope this too helps!
