I have an mxd file that I use as a template, this mxd references 2 databases (502 and 280 in the screenshot below). Now my question is when I try to create a version using create new version button in versioning tool bar then how to know which parent version is related to which database?? the drop down menu shows 2 parent versions with the same name dbo.default !!

I cannot till which till which is which, so If I am trying to create a new version to edit the schools I should do this in the 280 database but with the current window end up creating the version in the 502 database.

I am looking for method that doesn’t include trial and error.



Another method to do that is by using the version manager window then right click above the default version then create a new version. This window says the database that you’re in but it doesn’t have the capability to navigate between all databases in the mxd!!


I believe both of them depends on layer location in the TOC the above layer is the first one in the new version window and is the default in the version manager widow.
