Are you inheriting the Page class at the top of your code-behind :
Public Class xxx

    Inherits Page
    Public Sub Page_Load .....

    End Sub
End Class

Open in new window

For example, same project different form (these are ok);

<%@ Page Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeBehind="default.aspx.vb" Inherits="xxx._Default" %>
code behind:
Partial Public Class _Default
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page

<%@ Page Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeBehind="JMW_Rev_analys.aspx.vb" Inherits="xxx.WebForm1" %>

code behind:
Partial Public Class WebForm1
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
