> I'm trying to do a merge reintegrate and most of it is working OK. However, I have some Excel files in there that I have under svn. I made changes to them in my branch. Some of them are merging OK but others are giving messages like:
> Conflicted: C:\Documents and Settings\bri7744\My Documents\CLOC_Remedy_RCIP\7083\bin\Templates\7083 Exec NTF.xls

Ok, I get it I think. This leads to another question:

I want to do a reintegrate excluding my excel files directory, but the depth field is greyed out. How can I do the reintegrate and ignore that directory?
