IVersionedTable esriDifferenceTypeUpdateUpdate question

Discussion created by jroberts on Nov 8, 2012
Hi Guys

Hopefully someone out there can answer this.  I have some code (based on ESRI examples) that loops through all the feature classes in a feature dataset and attempts to identify all differences between two versions - conflict or not.  Trouble is, my code appears to find conflicts that aren't found by a standard post and reconcile in ArcMap.  I'm working from the example below.  My application will find conflicts and log them (especially update/update conflicts) - however, if I go right back into ArcMap and do a reconcile and post ArcMap doesn't find anything.  Further, a detailed inspection of the candidate feature shows that there is no difference at all between the versions... 

Confused...  Any ideas?
