Delphi compiler: how to find used units

I have a strange problem: I generate a new DXE2-Project and add a single unit to it, which I used in another project. Compiling the project opens another unit with an error. My problem: I can not find out whit this second unit is compiled. I can not find it in any uses-section. Is there a way that shows me the tree with the units (sorted by the way the compiler compiles them)? So I could find that unit in the right uses-section.

Thanks, Peter

Check your project source... Project menu|View Source. Is it listed there? You can also rename the mystery unit file and build. It should break on any place referencing it.

Great! Renaming the unit showed me the unit! Thanks for this idea - simple but clever!
