ERROR   'Button16" is not a member of   Test.FormName

I have been successfully using a Button on a form for more than a year in Visual Basic 2005
After moving this Button into a Panel control I started getting the following run time error:

'Button16’ is not a member of   Test.FormName

I continued to get this error even when the button was taken out of the Panel control and moved back to its original location on the form.  When programing (i.e.; me. button16.visible = false) I get the same error.   However all the Events associated with this button continue to function.
When I type “me.” the intellisense (sp?) box list all of the components on this form except Button16.  It even shows the Events associated with button16 (i.e.;  button16_ click) but not button16.  As if there was no button on the form with this name.
I am now unable to change any of button16 's properties within the program.

Why would the program no longer recognize the existence of a button?
Thanks for the help,

In the gui just delete Button16 and add a new Button and call it Button16. Event code will stay as it is i seem to remember.

Even though this was an easy solution.... the key point made within the solution was that the remnents of the prior Button16 would remain unchange.  That was the key point.
