Source control software is quite useful when several people work on the same project same time; one can take ownership on certain object or module (check-out), make modification, put it back (check-in), and other developers get changes you made. I have used myself Visual Source Safe
, long time ago, in Access 97 time. Last version, Visual SourceSafe 2005, will retire from mainstream support on 10 July 2012, and now you can use Team Foundation Server
, which offers similar functionality. Recently I learned about OASIS-SVN
versioning system, which is much cheaper than TFS. Do you know other source control software for Access? Are you happy using it? Please share your experience!
