How to attach multiple projects to same header file

Title says most of it. In the Arduino IDE, how do I attach one header file to multiple sketches?

I clicked on Sketch->Add file, but it made a copy of the file. Now I have to edit multiple files to make any one change.

#include "headerfile.h"

I tried that prior to the Sketch->Add file.

Where should the file be located? I have it in the Arduino sketch folder (my documents->Arduino) but the IDE says it cannot find the file.

C:\Users\anthony\Documents\Arduino\Pool_Heater_Panel_V2\Pool_Heater_Panel_V2.ino:12:25: fatal error: Pool_Modbus.h: No such file or directory

 #include "Pool_Modbus.h"


compilation terminated.

exit status 1
Error compiling for board Arduino/Genuino Uno.

The best place to put it would be in the libraries subfolder of your sketchbook:


That assumes C:\Users\anthony\Documents\Arduino is your sketchbook folder.

If you want to put it somewhere else then you need to provide the absolute path to the file in the #include directive.

Thank you.
