Hi Larry,

Thank you very much for your help!  It works.  To summarize here are the
commands I've executed to restore a dead version in the Attic.

boc01% pwd
boc01% /usr/local/bin/cvs -d /opt/prodcvs checkout -d /home/c62ip74/APRT
cvs checkout: Updating /home/c62ip74/APRT
boc01% /usr/local/bin/cvs update -j 1.2 -j 1.1 EA_APRT_LOAD.esql
boc01% /usr/local/bin/cvs commit -m "An restored dead version"
cvs commit: Examining .
cvs commit: warning: expected /opt/prodcvs/eai/APRT/EA_APRT_LOAD.esql,v
to be in Attic
Checking in EA_APRT_LOAD.esql;
/opt/prodcvs/eai/APRT/EA_APRT_LOAD.esql,v  <--  EA_APRT_LOAD.esql
new revision: 1.3; previous revision: 1.2

I do see the new version from the CVS GUI now.
Again, thank you very much for your time and your valuable advice on

Thank you Larry,

The ,v files are repository files, the working files do not have that
suffix.  So, you want:

        /usr/local/bin/cvs update -j 1.2 -j 1.1 EA_APRT_LOAD.esql

(There's no need for the -d, CVS remembers it from the checkout.)
