Merge checked-out files while Replace unchecked-out files


To get the latest version of files from SourceSafe, I need to treat writable files differently based on the check-out status:

1. Merge checked-out files
2. Replace unchecked-out files

The options on the SourceSafe dialog doesn't distinguish the two types of local writable files, unfortunately. Is there any way to do that?

Thanks in advance,

J. Huang

No, but in the typical (and recommended) VSS usage, non-checked out files will not be writeable. Make sure 'Make local non-checked out files writeable' on the Flags tab of the SourceSafe action is unchecked, and that 'Use read-only flag for files that are not checked out' is checked in the VSS GUI (Tools | Options | Local Files).
