I am goingto make a wild guess.
You copied that page from another page.
Then renamed the page. Make sure the page class name (asp.net gives it and userscore public partial class _MyPage) is unique.
Make sure also that the page directive "Inherits="_MyPage" points to it and both pages have different inherited classes

No, the class designations all look ok:
<%@ Page Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Register.aspx.vb" Debug="true" Inherits="Register"%>
code behind Register.aspx.vb class tag:
Public Class Register

are you sure your page_load method isn't declared anywere else? like in the aspx file itself? I insist because after googling for this for some time all i see is peopple having this issue had to delete a duplicated page load. What happens when you double
click the error? where does it point to?
Also, make sure class "register" isnt defined twice

What I have already posted is all the pertinent code for the page/classes. This error started happening after I added a few more dropdownlist objects to the collection of database insertion entries.

i saw we get our hand dirty. What happens when you remove the page load?
Can you delete the combos and the error dissapears?

Likely you have another page with the same name in the website somewhere. Did you copy an existing page of the same name and forget to rename it?
