HRESULT StartEditing(

Product Availability

StartEditing places the TIN in edit mode. It must be called before any edits can take place. The exception is after using ITinEdit.InitNew which automatically places the TIN in edit mode.

A False value is returned if StartEditing is not successful at opening the TIN for write access. The likely cause for failure would be file permissions.
