Appended Object on All Layers?

I appended an object to my model from another file…and it shows up on all layers. I cannot turn it off. It is still only one object as I can delete it and it disappears from all layers. Any ideas why this object would show up on all layers after being inserted (appended)?

I cannot turn it off.
What does this mean ?
Can you not press M and select the layer you want it to be on ?

If you have all layers active and you select the ‘Active Layer’ option when you append the object it will be alos active on all those layers

ok, how do you make that object “not active” on all layers after it has been appended?

i had this one time, it should fix itself if you select the object and press M and move it to the layer it is supposed to be on. (even though it is already on that layer)
