Unable to edit simple type

Hi ,

I need to change the properties of the simple type that we have defined in the dictionary , We are using JDI .I have navigated to the dictionary --> rclick on the simple type --> selected EDIT --> Added the files to the activity --> now when i double click on the simple type and try to change the properties it is giving the following message :

This simple type cannot be changed because the file xxx.xlf is read only .It is possible that the file has not been chacked out from DTR

Any idea why i am getting this error .

    Have you created the local project from active DCs? If you create the project from active DCs then all the files will be in read mode. Try creating the project from inactive DCs.

    Hope this helps.

    Open DTR perspective and go directly to .xlf file and check out it explicitly.

      Hi Maksim,

      When i do that it is allowing me to change the file , but when i try to save it i am getting the following error

      cannot save language C:\Documents and Settings\test\.dtc\0\DCs\abb.com\report\Report_webDyn\_comp\src\packages\abb\com\report\web\dictionary\velement\LastTransIn.dtsimpletype.xlf

      Please check the files e.g. for writeability / existence.</b>

    In case you have other xlf files in DTR like xlf.en or xlf.de then you need to check them out as well.
