Default Module and Form names in parentheses?


Just curious. In VB5's API, Code View, upper right corner, there is what might be called the Project window.
In it I see the names that I have given to the Forms and the non-Form Module in my program.
All understood.
But each name is followed in parentheses by another name, always containing a dot (and in one case, two consecutive dots!).
In these names I see components that I might have written, but they don't correspond well to the correct names.
They may be the original names assigned to those modules and later changed.
So far, they haven't interfered with the running of the program, but I wonder what they are and whether I should try to change them.

What you are describing should be the filename.

A dot and extension are usually shown, unless a new form or module has not yet been saved.

I have not seen the case of one or more dots without a file extension. Perhaps post a small screenshot.

Perhaps this is a VB5 (not VB6) compatibility related issue. Does the same thing happen if the project is opened from a root folder (e.g., C:\Project\MyProject.vbp)?

Are there special characters in frm/bas filenames (e.g. non-English character set)?

It may be related to an earlier question of mine, about the message you see in the attached Thumbnail #2, which appears each time I boot the program.
There's a mismatch of form names.
You can see the two dots in the filename "ed1Rule..frm".
I am not so clumsy as to have hit the dot key twice.
Thumbnail #1 shows the Project Window that I asked about.
You may notice that the second form, frmDerive, is followed in parentheses by a name that (before the extension) consists of the phonetic symbol eth--not on any keyboard I've ever seen.
My main concern is, should I try to fix up these file names, or let sleeping dogs lie? Is there a danger of making them inaccessible to my program?

What is the actual name you see in Windows Explorer for 'ed1Rule..frm'? Are extensions hidden?

What version of Windows is installed? If Vista or above, you might want to move your project folders to somewhere more suitable (e.g. C:\Users\{username}\My Documents\Projects), else they can get lost to folder virtualization (which might be related to the issue you are seeing if a project file exists both physically and in VirtualStore at the same time).
