in the name of the module to be checked out and click Next.
- Choose whether to check out one or more selected modules into an existing
project and click Next.
- On the next page you can provide the following information:
Target folder name (only when checking out a single
module): The name of a local folder in which the contents of the remote
folder will be placed. Note: If the local folder exists, its
contents will be deleted and replaced by the contents of the remote folder.
Parent of target folder: The existing local folder
into which the target folders will be created.
Checkout sub-folders (only when checking out a single
module): The option to indicate whether
the sub-folders of the remote folder should be checked out as children
of the target folder.

Note: Only folders within non-shared projects or projects shared with
the same CVS repository as the selected remote folder are valid targets for
the Checkout Into operation. Also, if the target project of the operation
is an unshared project, the project will be connected to the CVS repository
(i.e. the project will become a shared CVS project) but any pre-existing content
will be ignored.
