Understanding the Limitations of Visual SourceSafe

Although Visual SourceSafe is a powerful product, it does impose some limitations you should be aware of. Only Access 97 databases can be placed under Visual SourceSafe control, and user and group permissions can't be set when an object is under SourceSafe control. In fact, when you add a database to SourceSafe control, all user and group permissions are removed! Furthermore, you can't put replicated databases under source code control, and you can't move, rename, or copy the local version of the database and continue working with it under SourceSafe control. To move a database, you must first check in all objects, delete the local database, and then recreate it in the new location.
