Hi Brian.

Thank you for your reply.

ok... I'm having more success with the -j option.
It seems to have to require another state to have to merge with tho
I can't simply checkout the branch+date that I want.

I tried a few tricks such as...

cvs checkout -j MyBranch:"22 mar 2002" -j MyBranch:"22 mar 2002" MyModule
cvs checkout -j MyBranch:"22 mar 2002" -j MyBranch:"23 mar 2002" MyModule

but both ended up giving me the main trunk again.

Would it work if I merged my Branch+Date state with the MainTrunk files for
I created my branch.
eg created branch at 10th Oct 2001.

cvs checkout -D "10 oct 2001" -j MyBranch:"23 mar 2002" MyModule

If this is true.
How can I find out when a branch was made?
I had a hunt for that in faq's/doc's but all I could find was a post where
someone said you couln't get the date back for when a branch was made!
OhNo!  another stumbling block?

Thanks ALOT for this help.
much appreciated.
Brian Sharpe.
