What Happens? - Checkin Shared file from other project

What happens when you check in a file in MS Access that is shared from another project? I have a module checked out and being modified in one Access project and I am closing up another project that shares this module. When I checkin the module VSS displays:

<module> is checked out to <project1> and you are in <project2> Proceed Anyway?

I know what this means but what will it do? Check the module in and abandon my changes in project2? Cancel the checkout? Orphan my changes in project2?

RE: What Happens? - Checkin Shared file from other project

It will check in the version you have in Project2.  

Any changes to the version in Project1 will be lost in sourcesafe, and the next time Project1 gets or checks out that module, its local version will be overridden with the sourcesafe version (ie the version from Project2).

So effectively, abandon the changes in project 1, not 2.
