    Default Cannot find Symbol

    i have two classes say A and B

    i am using A in Class B

    Both are simply stored in d drive(not in any package)

    but when i instantiate A's Object in B,and then compile it.It says Cannot find Symbol:class A


    Why am i getting this error??

    Are they in the same package? If they are you should be able to have this work. If they are not in the same package you need to package a and import it in b. Try putting both classes in a folder and see if anything changes.

    @sunde887
    He has already stated they are not in any packages and are in the same folder.

    @OP
    Could you give us code and exactly how you compile the classes?
