Dear Sir\Madam,

We are planning to implement CVS software for document control management system in our organization. During testing, I have some doubts that, how to change the word/Excel/PDF document version from 1.0 to 2.0 directly with valid reason.

Looking forward your reply ASAP.

Thanks in advance.

cvs tag V2_0 document

OH, you mean "how do I mess with the revision numbers that cvs Uses to keep track of things for me?".

"You should use tags to identify things
that belong together and ignore the revision numbers -- they're for
CVS's internal use only." -Larry Jones

It can be done.

But beware, you can mess CVS up with this, and short of restoring from a backup there is no clean way to go back.

Several places in the following list is the command you are looking for.
