When you are working with a Microsoft Access project (ADP) and Microsoft Visual Source Safe (VSS), and you click Get Latest Version command or the Create Database from SourceSafe Project command, some of the startup properties of the database are reset to their default values. Whatever values were stored for those properties in the VSS project are lost.

This article assumes that you are familiar wit using the capabilities of Visual SourceSafe. For more information about Visual SourceSafe, please refer to the "Visual SourceSafe User's Guide" or Visual SourceSafe Help.
