SYMPTOMS
When you try to add a Microsoft Access database project to Visual SourceSafe (VSS) by using the integration menus that Microsoft Office Developer adds, the database project is not added to VSS and you do not receive an error message.

This problem may occur after you upgrade from VSS 6.0c to VSS 6.0d.If you archive part of an existing database, and then restored it to a newblank database, the VSS command line and OLE Automation cannot retrieve older versions of anyfiles in the database.
