Happy Friday,

I've got a question about RoboHelp and SourceSafe, a
version control database.

We've got a product with an Access front end that
makes reference to a .chm help file. We released a new
version of the product but never changed that
reference. We're going to release documentation for
the new version but have to give the updated .chm the
same name as the old file.

Since not much has changed between versions, (the
release was mostly a bug fix) I copied the old project
and created a new directory. In RoboHelp, I created
new folders for the new version. I import the old html
files into designated folders in RoboHelp and when I
edit those imported files, changes are made to the old
files as well.

I don't want to change what we have in our old
version files, I just want ot start fresh with the new
stuff. Any ideas about how I should go about this?
