You are absolutely correct, sorry for not adding a code snippet:

Here we go, I hope this gives you an idea

unit Someunit;

  Classes, Sysutils,
  U_Global, L_Lockdata, U_Strings, U_RegExpr, L_Wintol, U_Images,  
  U_Tiff, U_Tiff_Tags, U_Tiff_Global, U_Pixels, L_Mathe, LeanOcr,  

  TMyFile = class(TObject)
    FFilename: String;
{ etc }
    procedure SetFilename(const Value: String);
    destructor destroy; override;
    property Filename: String read FFilename write SetFilename;
{ etc }
