SDE Annotation Table Empty in Versions

Discussion created by dknolan on Apr 18, 2014
I created a feature-linked SDE 10.1 SQL Server-based annotation table in a dataset that is registered as versioned. The DEFAULT table looks fine, but when I changed to a version to edit the data, the table was empty and editable.  I tried different versions and changing the version of the underlying, related feature class so both tables would be from the same version, but this did not help.

Is this normal? and how do you avoid this happening?

I got around this by directly editing the annotation in DEFAULT, which I didn't think was possible.
