I have to pull an existing form in a project into my project.

What is the cleanest way to do this?

Do I save the form as....(my new project) and then copy files in References, bin, icon, images into the corresoponding
new project.

I am extremely concerned about losing some of the data.

Thanks in advance..

1) Exclude the files from project 1

2) In Windows Explorer, cut the files from project 1 folder, including the .resx files.  The images get stored in the .resx files.

3) Paste into project 2 folder

4) Add the form to project 2.
