Is there a way to edit a config spec to view only particular subfolders in a VOB?

    Hard. You need usually to see something of the parent directory in order to access any sub-directory.
    Maybe unless you access them via their oid (the oid: syntax)?

    Yes, there are several.... here are a few:
    1) You can take advantage of the -none rule in the config. spec.
    (e.g.)
    element * CHECKEDOUT
    element /vobs/a_vob /main/LATEST
    element /vobs/a_vob/some_dir /main/LATEST
    element /vobs/a_vob/some_dir/* /main/LATEST
    element /vobs/a_vob/some_other_dir /main/LATEST
    element /vobs/a_vob/some_other_dir/* /main/LATEST
    element * -none

    This would show you the vob /vobs/a_vob and it's to sub-dirs some_dir and some_other_dir
    and their subcontents and hide all other elements

    2) you could label on the elements (files and directories - and their parent dierctories) that you
    wish to see and then use the label in a config. spec.
    (e.g.)
    element * SOME_LABEL
    element * -none

    There are other ways.. but start simple ...

    Hope this helps...

    Note that for directory config spec rules, you could have issues with subdirectories using element /path/to/dir/* LABEL1

    For example, if you have a config spec like
    element * CHECKEDOUT
    element \WinVOB\mydir\* LABEL1
    element * /main/LATEST

    then only the direct elements residing in mydir would see LABEL1. If you have a subdirectory like \WinVOB\mydir\subdir with content, the elements in subdir would follow show /main/LATEST, not necessarily LABEL1.

    To recursively select mydir and it's contents including subdirectories, use element \WinVOB\mydir\... LABEL1 (note * was replaced with three periods in a row) in your config spec.

    Marc,
    Good point-out.... yes that is what I meant...
    I probably should avoid posting from smartphone ;-)

    But both of you, you correct implicitly the question.
    You also show the contents of the parent directories.
    It is still not clear what was exactly asked, which we could only know by being told why this was asked.
