We want to force developers to add at least some comment to any code checked in or out of Visual SourceSafe.
Is there a setting to do this ?

I appreciate your attempting to close your open questions; however, my comment had nothing to do with this question, so I can only assume you meant to select the response of CJ_S instead.

I can't change an accepted answer, however.

As such, I have created a question for him at


If you'll comment in it, I'll accept it post haste.

Thanks to both of you,
