Go Up to Version Control

Projects can exist independently of version control. You can add an entire project to version control at any point. When you decide to place a project under version control, a project is created on the underlying version control system that has been specified.

Once a project or file has been added to version control, the features of your version control system are available directly from the Project Tab. Any changes you make to a project or file from within Rapid SQL are simultaneously changed in your version control system.

The table below describes the options and functionality on the Add to Version Control dialog box:
