    Looking for some assistance with a script that would allow me to export the details (name, date, hrs. worked on, etc) into some manageable and easy to read format.

    I've done some rooting around in the previous conversations here regarding visual source safe and didn't turn up much. Has anyone worked with this program in depth to help give me a few pointers?

    Thanks for your assistance/ feedback. Smiley

    peace

    Have you checked out the documentation for the command line? I have not looked at it in depth, but it seems to have a good amount of information.

    And a question for the SourceSafe team, is the product in sort of a waining mode in favor of Team System? It seems there are very few seminars or snippets or blog posts about the latest version and some of the new features.

    Me personally I have started looking at Subversion (http://subversion.tigris.org/), more as an alternative/supplement as opposed to fully replacing SourceSafe. But it seems sometimes that SourceSafe is waining. If you try to go to the SourceSafe page you get the previous version and not the latest. SO I am curious the status and the plans. Is this pretty much the end of the road for SourceSafe as it exists today? Planning to use SQL Express as the data store in the future? What is the plan going forward?
