    Hi Riley,

    You asked:

       "I keep getting the below error:

    M:\view\testvob>cleartool co foo.c
    cleartool: Error: Element "foo.c" is already checked out to view ""
    how do I solve?"

    The answer is:

       You should either checkin the the file foo.c (to commit the change) or uncheckout it out (unco) to toss the changes.

    Also assuming M: is your MVFS drive it is probably not a good idea to create a view called "view".  that name might just cause confusion later on with you will see messages like '... view "view"'
