How to apped a layer, feature layer or feature class to a versioned layer  in ArcMap

Discussion created by jsn on Aug 28, 2012
Hi all

We wrote a model builder that runs in ArcMap and appends the data copied in a personal geodatabase layer to one of the editable layers that is versioned. When we run this model it always shows an error message, and the append fails.

We tried the same model but this time running the append against a personal geodatabase and it works fine.

Any explanation why the append does not work with SDE versioned layers, and works with personal or file geodatabases?
