I am working with winforms and in the file section I have a file that needs to be accessed from a static method. I get the following error message on fields that are associated with that file...error code COBCH0969, Cannot access object data from a static method or field. In order to fix these compile errors I put the keyword static on the FD of the file. When I run the program in this way I get a runtime error of NullRefernceException -- object reference not set to an instance of an object.
Now I realize that I could make the method as public and my problems would go away, but I really don't want to have to do this. How can I resolve this issue? Thanks
