Objects Checked Out by Other Developers
When you are developing as a team the check in and check out functions from the library painter can be very useful in stopping more than one person from editing the same object.

This all works well but PowerBuilder will not let you checkin or clear the checkout status for objects not checked out by your user ID.

A simple way around this problem is to temporarily alter your user id to match the id of the person you want to be.

Goto the preferences dialog, under the library preferences look for UserID. Click on the user id entry and you will see your user id in the edit box. Change this to the value of the ID you want to be and press OK. You can now go about your work in the PBL as if you were that developer.
