Using Microsoft Visual Studio Community 2022 Version 17.5.3

I have two SQL database projects in my solution: Proj1 and Proj1Log. Proj1 database contains a function that retrieves information from tables of Proj1Log. The function looks like "select ... from [$(Proj1Log)].[dbo].[LogTable]".

To handle the $(Proj1Log) variable I tried to add a reference from Proj1 to Proj1Log using the "Add Database Reference" -> "Database project in current solution" and selecting the Proj1Log project with the corresponding variable.
But adding the reference failed with the following error: "Project Proj1.sqlproj contains a reference to a project which is unloaded: <path>\Proj1Log.sqlproj.".

Both projects are successfully loaded in the solution.

How can I fix the error and add reference to another database project?

Please, advise.
Thank you.

What I have tried:

1. Unload and reload one of the projects and both of them.
2. Temporary exclude the function referencing Proj1Log from the Proj1 in order to compile both projects without any error / warning.
3. Ask Google for the solution - the similar question on Stack Overflow has no answer.

Show the rest of the "function". Maybe you have your languages mixed up.

This is the query in Proj1, that creates the function.
TypeId (integer) and Timestamp (timestamp) columns are defined in the Log table in Proj1Log project.

CREATE FUNCTION [dbo].[ViewErrorLog]
@logType int
select top(300)
[Id] as 'Id'
,[Time] as 'Time'
,[Application] as 'Application'
,[Text] as 'Error'
from [$(Proj1Log)].[dbo].[Log] with (nolock)
where [TypeId] <= @logType
order by [Timestamp] desc

actually, when I am having that error, I am just skip that error. SQL DB Project sometimes buggy, and no problem with another .NET Project.

Thanks for an answer!
The code works correctly on real SQL DB.
Your answer is the best. :)
