The namespace Blah already contains a definition for 'rptBlah'

Occasionally when updating a Crystal Report I get the above error, which seems to happen from a Crystal Reports automatically generated file (Blah1.rpt) having the same name for its classes as the original report. How do I gracefully resolve this issue? Just deleting the autogenerated fiel does not seem to work.

im assuming you are creating this report at runtime via VS.Net? if so, check that your references are pointing to the GAC and not your projects bin.

usually when you create a report via vs.net, vs creates a blah.cs and blah.rpt. Delete the cs fiel or vb one accroding to the language you use. leave only the rpt version
