    I opened an old project in version 6.80 and found I was not getting a list of methods and properties (what do we call that facility?) for a library object. A couple of hours and a lot of stripping down and I had a new file that worked and an old one that didn't despite being apparently identical in every respect. Resorting to a Hex Editor I finally noticed the difference in the data area of the source file.

    Type of libary object - CodepageFile

    Working project - Object1=cpf:CodepageFile

    Failing project - Object1=cpf:CodePageFile

    It looks like a case-sensitivity problem. Notice the uppercase "P", manually changing it to lower case in Notepad made it work.

    Why do you think it changed? Did you change the library signature?

    I might have done - it's nearly a year since I posted the library so I really can't remember :( I guess it's the most likely reason.
