SourceSafe Keyword Expansion Template

We use Visual SourceSafe's keyword expansion. Each of our project's source files has (or should if we remember) the following header when we add it to source control.

// TEST.CPP : implementation file
//
/* $Log: /TEST/TEST.CPP $
*/     
This macro inserts the template into .H and .CPP files.

Sub AddSSHeader()
'DESCRIPTION: Insert the source safe keyword expansion comments at the top of source file

 strName = UCase(ActiveDocument.Name)
 pos = Instr(strName, ".")

 if (pos < 1) then
  Exit Sub
 end if
  
 strExt = Mid(strName, pos)

 if (strExt = ".CPP") then
  strDesc = "implementation file"
 else 
  if (strExt = ".H") then
   strDesc = "header file"
  else
   exit sub       
  end if
 end if

 ActiveDocument.Selection.StartOfDocument

 ' Check for existing keyword expansion
 for i = 1 to 20
  ActiveDocument.Selection.SelectLine

 if Instr(ActiveDocument.Selection, "/* $Log:") > 0 then
  MsgBox "File already has keyword expansion."
  exit sub
 end if  

  ActiveDocument.Selection.LineDown
 next

 strFullName = ActiveDocument.FullName
 pos = Instr(strFullName, ":")

 if (pos > 0) then
  strFullName = Mid(strFullName, pos + 1)
 end if

 ActiveDocument.Selection.StartOfDocument
 ActiveDocument.Selection = "// " + strName + " : " + strDesc + vbCrLf 
 ActiveDocument.Selection = "//" + vbCrLf
 ActiveDocument.Selection = "/* $Log: " + UCase(Replace(strFullName, 
 "\", "/")) + " $" + vbCrLf
 ActiveDocument.Selection = "*/" + vbCrLf + vbCrLf

end sub
