'Global' not allowed in this context; identifier expected

The Global keyword is used in a statement where it is not allowed.

The Global keyword allows you to access a namespace defined outside the namespace hierarchy in which your code is to be compiled. Global starts the qualification path at the outermost namespace level of the .NET Framework class library. For an illustration, see Global.

Certain statements, such as Imports and Namespace, are independent of the namespace in which your code is to be compiled. They require a full qualification path, starting from the root-level namespace, such as System or Microsoft.VisualBasic. In such statements, the Global keyword is superfluous and is not allowed.

Error ID: BC36001

To correct this error

  • Remove the Global keyword from the statement. It is not needed.
