This post is for those who uses the VS 2003 for development and, in the same time, uses VSTS 2005 for Source Control. If you are the one of this group, you probably want to get the latest version of your code when you check it out.

Some queries return a lot of results, thousands of results actually. Apparently, it seems there’s a limit of the number of results you can export to Excel or Project directly from the query results in VS:

Trying to export more than 2085 results will return the following error:
“TF80071: Team Foundation encountered an error while accessing...

Last week one of our customers invited us to brain storm about TFS and ClearCase. This customer has many departments; part of them work with TFS and the others with ClearCase. They want to consolidate the tools and work with only one tool.

Working with VS2005 IDE
With ClearCase there is not PendingChanges window.
Working with another SCM tool (like VSS)
We have a scenario of: Developer has 2 projects - VS2003 project that managed in VSS, and VS2005 project managed in TFS. The developer had no...
