.Net variable is not declared. It may be not accessible due to its protection level

I have a masterpage.master.vb line of code that calls the App_Code/Variables.vb code directory and code.

Error Message Received: DisplayedMessages is not declared. It may be inaccessible due to its protection level.

Masterpage.master.vb line of code:
(DisplayedMessages) is the variable that is declared as a public in the App_Code/Variables

Catch ex As Exception
            DisplayedMessages = "The Permissions Access was denied:" & ex.Message.ToString
            ErrorMessage = ex.ToString
            LogErrors(ScreenName, ErrorMessage, Session("UserID").ToString)


AppCode/Variables.vb

Public Module Variables
    Public DisplayedMessages As String
 End Module

Is your folder named AppCode or App_Code? AppCode won't work and App_Code should.
