					Adding Source Control to Microsoft Access
Microsoft Visual Source Safe is part of MSDN. By installing the Office/Access developer
extensions/edition or Visual Studio Tools for Office (VSTO), it gets added to your Access menus:




Source Control Tab in Microsoft Access 2010 (download from Microsoft).
Visual SourceSafe is only available for the 32 bit version of Access 2010. It is not available for the 64 bit
version.




Source Control Tab in Microsoft Access 2007 (details from Microsoft)




Tools, SourceSafe menu item for Microsoft Access 2003 and earlier

Do Not Automatically Add New Objects to Visual Source Safe
Choose the Options item to bring up this screen:
By default, the highlighted option is Yes. Change it to No. This allows you to add new objects to your
database while you're developing without a dialog box interrupting you and asking if you want to add it to
VSS.

Adding a Microsoft Access Object to Microsoft Visual
SourceSafe
Of course, you need to remember to add your new objects to VSS. When you are ready, simply choose
the [Add Objects to SourceSafe] option from the SourceSafe ribbon or menu:




     Microsoft Access 2010                                             Microsoft Access 2003 or earlier
                                         Microsoft Access 2007

Select your new objects and they are added to VSS in one swoop.
