I have two different VB6 projects.
I want to re-use one class module from project A, so I opened the project B and selected "Add Class Module" to add the moda.cls file. But when I tried to compile project B, the following error occur:

Set  moda  = New moda
        ^          ^
"Compile error: Variable not defined"

Why? How can I fix this error?
Thank You.

Do you have somewhere the moda variable declared?

For problem like this, you should have the following line on top of each module:
this requests that you have every variable declare before you can use it in code.

Don't use the same name with variable and class

dim objmoda as moda
Set  objmoda  = New moda
