Referencing ascx control using Visual Studio 2008 SP1 on ASP.NET 3.5 project

    I have a user control in a datagrid which I have given a className of QuotePrintDoc to in its Control directive on the control page. From this I am able to register an instance of the object on the datagrids - itemdatabound event.

    From there I can use the declaration:

    Dim objQuotePrintDoc as ASP.QuotePrintDoc = e.Item.FindControl("objQuotePrintDoc")
    
    objQuotePrintDoc.InitialiseDoc( <list of parameters to pass>)
    

    This all works fine and allows me to process the control through parameters. When I try to publish the project I get an error in the publish section as follows:

    error BC30002: Type ASP.QuotePrintDoc is not defined
    

    Has anyone any ideas what I need to do to enable publishing of this. I have also tried the route of putting in a placeholder and then using the <% Reference %> directive on the page. This also works but will not publish either.
