HELP!
I am in a Java club and we have homework in it. I went to the website with the problem for the homework, and did all my coding and stuff, but it wouldn't accept it when I turned it in because the name was wrong. So I went in and changed the name, but not from Eclipse. When I tried to open it with Eclipse, it couldn't find the file because it was trying to find the old file's name, which didn't exist. Then the program disappeared from Eclipse, and when I tried to open it from the file thing(Windows Explorer) it opened in a different program and when the program tried to open the file it was unable to for some reason. Help, please?

The name of what?

Eclipse supports refactoring so you should generally do renaming from
within Eclipse. If it's an issue with the file system name of the
project itself, you should still refactor it first in Eclipse, delete
the project from the workspace (without deleting it from the underlying
file system), rename the folder in the file system and then File->Import
the project back into the workspace.

Sounds like you mean the project.

What do you mean by "the program"?

File thing?

Probably you just need to import the project (presumably you renamed it)
into the workspace.
