How can you tell exactly what is contained in a Merge Module?  Does the Merge Module panel in the IDE tell the whole story?

I hope someone responds because I'm not sure if this new setup is working properly (message board).  I usually get responses but haven't rec'd any from my last 3 posts.

Even if you can't answer my question, respond to let me know I'm function 'OK"!

Thanks, as always!

You can open the Merge Module in Orca and look at the tables. The file table will tell you which files are included for instance.

By the way - You can also open merge modules directly into ISWI 2.x if you prefer ISWI to Orca (which I do) :-).

You just need to change the selection in the "Files of type" combo on the open dialog.  ISWI actually "imports" the msm file and creates a new project.  This is quite handy for fixing problems in merge modules from 3rd party sources.
