Version Control and Evironments

I am using the Perforce Helix Visual Client for version control. I need to check-out/edit a jupyter notebook under a particular Anaconda environment. I can check out the .ipynb file within the workspace by right clicking and “Check Out”. Next, I want to use “Open With” directly from the Perforce client. However, I don’t know what executable to select among several found under Anaconda3\Scripts to open the notebook under a specific Anaconda Navigator environment other than the base(root) environment.

As long as the environment running jupyter has the nb_conda_kernels package, jupyter will be able to execute code using any of your installed environments. When saving a notebook, the kernel that was being used is saved along with it (by name), so you may well have the right kernel picked for you automatically when you open the notebook again.
