: Can u delete the top revision for a file?

Hi,

No. You can never delete any revision of a file or make changes to an old revision and retain that revision number after your modifications. Version Control systems are usually designed in such a way that changing ?the past? would violate the whole idea of version control.

If the reason for wanting to have a previous revision of a file become your current tip revision (latest revision) of that file, the way I would do it is as follows:

Check out the older revision by label (if you have one attached to the file in question), or by date and/or time. StarTeam will show a dialog where you need to confirm that you really want to check out this older revision. Once checked out, you check the file back in again stating the reason for doing so and selecting the check boxes ?Force check-in?. Your ?old? revision is now your current, or tip, revision.
