Thank you for the information. I have read parts of the manual that I thought applied to my question but I have not found the answer. I have probably spent about 3-4 hours on this issue on my own before asking for help. None of our 5 programmers have solved the mystery.
I must admit that I haven't read the entire manual from start to finish. The reason is that I have the impression that I would spend a huge amount of time reading items that aren't relevant to my query. That is why I have turned to the user group for assistance.
Also, thanks for guiding me regarding quoting responses and answering below.
You asked why we only want to check out one file. There are two reasons. 1) There is alot of 'junk' in the repository that I don't want to download to my local directory. 2) I have made changes to other files which are not complete and I want to manually compare what is on the repository to my working copy before updating those files.
So the scenario is that I have many files in various stages of readiness to be compared with the repository, another programmer has uploaded a single new file, there is lots of extraneous junk on the repository that I don't want to export, and I just one the one new file so that I can make changes and then commit it.
Is this possible with TortoiseSVN?
