This method takes the number of fields to match, and and two arrays which define the field mapping. These arrays will have the indexes of the fields from the source feature and the indexes of the matching fields in the target annotation feature class.

This method should be called after calling BeginAddElements. BeginAddElements will reset any attribute conversion setup that was established ,before calling it.

This method cannot be called from Visual Basic, Java, or the .NET languages. Instead, use the SetupAttributeConversion2 interface on IFDOAttributeConversion.
