    Angry Unanswered: Exclusive File-Open for Design Changes

    I just converted a bunch of 97 databases to 2002 and this is by far the most irritating difference I'm having to deal with. Is there an easy way (other than messing with Microsoft Visual SourceSafe)?

    It's ridiculus that I can't add or change an object while somebody (user) is in the database! Is there an option I can change?

    Thanks!

    best workaround without using VSS is have backend (data) and front-end

    keep a master of the front-end local to your pc and after changes redistribute

    Best price would be to go to e-bay and search forr visual source safe version 6.0

    make sure it is new and still shrinkwrapped

    read the txt file before you install - there are three different ways to install

    I love it - it has saved me much frustration of keeping up with version distribution

    Thank you! I'll check that route. Based on the feedback I'm seeing here, I'll assume that I can buy VSS stand alone - is that correct? The paper I read on Microsoft's support page said to purchase MS Office XP Developer - that it included VSS as an add-in...

    you can also buy a developer kit (add on) for 97 0r 2k and the VSS would work fine
    Three types of installation make it standalone or shareable
