    ByVal VersionName As String, _
    ByVal acquireLock As Boolean, _
    ByVal abortIfConflicts As Boolean _
) As Boolean
public bool Reconcile3 (
    string VersionName,
    bool acquireLock,
    bool abortIfConflicts
HRESULT Reconcile3(
  BSTR VersionName,
  VARIANT_BOOL acquireLock,
  VARIANT_BOOL abortIfConflicts
VersionName [in]

VersionName is a parameter of type BSTR acquireLock [in]
acquireLock is a parameter of type bool abortIfConflicts [in]
abortIfConflicts is a parameter of type bool

Errors Returned

FDO_E_RECONICLE_VERSION_NOT_AVAILABLE: Unable to reconcile: the target version is currently being reconciled against.

FDO_E_VERSION_BEING_EDITED: Operation not allowed while the version is being edited.

FDO_E_VERSION_NOT_FOUND: The version could not be located.


The Reconcile3 function reconciles the current edit version with the specified target version. The target version must be an ancestor of the current version or an error will be returned. The target version name passed in is case-sensitive and should take the form {owner}.{version_name} for example, SDE.DEFAULT. The first Boolean argument acquireLock specifies if locks should be obtained or not - true acquires the lock, false does not acquire the locks. The second Boolean argument abortIfConflicts specifies if the reconcile process should abort the reconcile if conflicts are detected for any class. Ideally, abortIfConflicts is only set to true when performing a reconcile in a automated batch type environment where a user does not have the ability to interactively resolve conflicts.

If the returned Boolean value from Reconcile3 is TRUE, then conflicts were detected. Otherwise no conflicts were detected.

A reconcile can only be performed if no other users are currently editing the version. As well, the target version cannot concurrently be reconciling by a second application. See IVersion::IVersionLocks for additional information on detecting version locks.

The Reconcile3 method provides the ability to either acquire or not acquire the version locks during the reconcile process. If the locks are not acquired the version is able to be reconciled in parallel when other versions are currently being reconciled. One may desire this functionality when there is no intention of posting the version after the reconcile process. If the intention is to "post" the version after performing the reconcile, it is strongly recommended that the locks are acquired.

If one does attempt to post after performing the reconcile, there is a chance that the target version might have been modified since the reconcile - in this case, the version will have to be re-reconciled. Therefore, the first reconcile is a waste of server and client system resources.

Calling Reconcile will abort the current edit operation therefore any edits made within an open edit operation when reconcile is called will be lost. If there is an open edit operation it is good practice to call StopEditOperation prior to calling Reconcile
