¿Qué significa 'dar pie'?



¿Qué significa 'dar pie'?

I can't remember the context but I thought it might mean 'to give rise to' but now I realise that's not right, is it?

Gracias grin

More context would help us help you. Some times it can mean, "to put up with", or "not do anything about".

Hope this helps.
