Question:

When using Keyword Expansion why are file contents being omited upon check-out?


Answer:

This occurs when one of the keywords is missing a $. Double check the original file for omitted dollar signs ensuring that each keyword has two dollar signs wrapping it. To resolve this disable keyword expansion, check out the file and look for missing $ characters. Add these where necessary then check in the file again and turn on keyword expansion before testing a check-out.
