To work on a version controlled package you must have the package checked out. When a package is checked out to a specific user other users cannot make changes to the package until it has been checked in again.
Check In/Check Out
|1.||In the Project Browser window, right-click on the package icon.|
|2.||Select the , or menu options, as appropriate.|
|3.||If required, enter a comment when prompted to do so. |
The package icon in the Project Browser window should change. When you check out a package this is represented by a figure 8 to the left of the package icon. When you check in a package the package icon is overlaid with a colored rectangle and key. In the example below, the upper package is checked out whilst the lower package is checked in.
Note: If you check out a version controlled package whilst offline, the package icon has a red figure 8 in front of it. See Offline Version Control.
