Hi,
I have a code and I want to add a .cpp file that I made and use the functions that I've done in that .cpp file. So at this project I am adding the ekf.cpp file and then included....but I get this errors.

what is the problem? If I will not add to the project the ekf.cpp file then I will receive a error that the ekf.cpp can not be opened no such file or directory.

You are including a header file more than once, if you are going to do this you need to use #ifndef #define #endif etc etc

Seems more like a case of include "file.cpp" in multiple places (this is a bad thing to do).

I did that and now

I did and now is the same error

It appear you are declaring the same object in two *.cpp files. That will happen if you declare something in a header file then include that header file in all *.cpp files. What you need to do to corect that is declare it with the extern keyword in the header file, then on only ONE of the *.cpp files declare it again without extern

// header file named myheder.h (or whatever name you want to give it)
extern double u_err;
#include <myheader.h>
// one of the *.cpp files
double u_err = 0.0;
