Its a managed spreadsheet project. I had moved it from a computer with VS 2008 and Office 2003 to a machine with Office 2007

The message means that the keyword "Globals" could refer to more than one class or namespace.  It sounds like you have an Imports statement for the Microsoft.VisualBasic namespace.  If you remove that Imports statement, it should fix your Globals reference.  If you are using functions from the MS.VisualBasic namespace, you would have to fully qualify them in your code.

Example, instead of calling "Instr" you would have to call Microsoft.VisualBasic.Instr
