FIX: A function definition is added to the wrong .cpp file in Visual C++ .NET 2003

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
Your Microsoft Visual C++ .NET 2003 solution contains multiple projects, and these projects contain files that have the same file name. When you add a function to a file in one project by using the Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 IDE, that function definition is added to the wrong file. Visual Studio .NET adds the function definition to a file that has the same file name as the correct file. However, the file is in the wrong project.
