Unable to Branch a label from top of directory tree



    Hi, All,


    I ran into an issue today.


    I have a directory tree.  Under the tree, about 28 files have a label.  The tree have 3-4 levels and several thousand files. 


    When I click on the top-level folder and select Branch, I give my branch name and I "Branch From Version"  by Label and I give my label name.


    What I get is an error:

    Microsoft Visual Studio
    No items match $/Sales - Affinity/Oracle/TCA in the label AFFINITY-R2-OWB-PORTING-PATCH-SIT-80225.

    I have verified that the label is correct and that I can find all labeled files if I try to Find by Label.


    Any ideas?  It's *really* painful branching individual files.  :-)


    Thanks in Advance!

  • Like the error message says, the branch root must be included in the label.  Doublecheck this is the case.
