German term or phrase: zugreifen
This is mentioned in an IT report and I believed the meaning was to access, but in the context I have this sounds a bit strange - could there be another option? 'Der Bericht greift auf die Version 0 zu'

Thanks for any help.

English translation:utilizes, uses information from (Version 0)
Explanation:
Given the IT environment, zugreifen means to access. If a report accesses a version, then it does what a program does when it accesses a database. It uses info it finds there. Other interpretations cannot be excluded, but this seems most likely in the context.

Explanation:
It's hard to say without seeing a bit more of the text. Would it work with the rest of your context to simply say "This report applies to/covers Version 0?"

Mit diesem Beispiel läßt sich nicht sehr viel anfangen. Ich habe das Gefühl, daß wenigstens einer der obergenannten Bgriffe gemeint war,
