Journal_File Initialization Variable

Visual Studio 2005

Specifies the file in which Visual SourceSafe logs all commands that change stored data. This initialization variable is used in the Srcsafe.ini file only.

Journal_File = <file name>

You can set this variable in the Srcsafe.ini file directly or in Visual SourceSafe Administrator. In Visual SourceSafe Administrator, use the General tab of the SourceSafe Options dialog box. Specify the journal file name in the Log all actions in journal file box.

Sets Sslog.txt as the journal file:

Journal_File = O:\Docs\SSLog.txt
