Type or namespace UserControls not found in RelayWeb

I get the error "The type or namespace name 'UserControls' does not exist in the namespace 'RelayWeb' (are you missing an assembly reference?)" This is an imported existing web project and I have tried adding references to RelayWeb (developed in-house). This ia a ASP.NET with C# 2008 DotNet 3.5 project that was converted from a ASP.NET with C# 2003 DotNet 1.1.

Please refer to screen shot attached.

Can you show the line that generates the error?

As a side note, folders in a .NET project, while most often times do, do not have to represent a namespace. Just because a folder with the same name as a namespace exists does not mean the namespace exists. You'll have to look at the namespace declarations of the affected files to see if the namespaces have been changed.

The path is http://localhost/RelayV4/RelayWeb/Stub_Aliases_aspx_cs.cs if that helps. It was a project I converted from DotNet 1.1 to DotNet 3.5.

What do the namespace declarations look like in the files you are trying to access within UserControls? Do they have something like:
namespace RelayWeb.UserControls

Here is what I found:

Stub_Aliases_aspx_cs.cs is located in:        RelayV4\RelayWeb\App_Code\Migrated\Campaign\Stub_Aliases_aspx_cs.cs

It has the Microsoft generated comments as follows:

// This file was generated as part of an ASP.NET 2.0 Web project conversion.
// This code file 'App_Code\Migrated\Campaign\Stub_Aliases_aspx_cs.cs' was created and contains an abstract class
// used as a base class for the class 'Migrated_Aliases' in file 'Campaign\Aliases.aspx.cs'.
// This allows the the base class to be referenced by all code files in your project.

The abstract class mentioned in the comments is:

abstract public class Aliases :  RelayBasePage



The inheritied abstract class (RelayBaseClass) is found in:

RelayV4\RelayWeb\App_Code\Config.cs and the class it inherits is System.Web.UI.Page

public class RelayBasePage : System.Web.UI.Page

The namespace in the RelayV4\RelayWeb\App_Code\Config.cs file creates is RelayWeb.

RelayV4\RelayWeb\CAMPAIGN/Aliases.aspx.cs mentioned in the above comments has the using statement “RelayWeb.UserControls” and that is found just fine. The namespace is RelayWeb.Campaign.

I hope this makes sense.
