Glen, Gerhard,
  Thanks so much for your assistance, tried this out and the feature works like a charm!

  Check out <http://www.cvsnt.org/manual/html/Keyword-substitution.html>
  Mainly $Revision$, and possibly $Header$ (which contains $Revision$).
Yes, but not exactly the way you describe.  It actually substitutes the 
values in the checkout / update phase.
  Look up "keywords", specifically the $Revision$ tag.
     // This file is version $Revision$
  ends up as:
     // This file is version $Revision 1.2$
  for version 1.2.
