FDO_E_VERSION_IS_PROTECTED: Operation not allowed because the version is protected.

FDO_E_VERSION_REDEFINED: The version has been redefined to reference a new database state.


The Post method requires that the current edit version has been reconciled with any ancestor versions prior to being called. The implicit locking during a reconcile should greatly increase the chances of the source and target versions being ready to post. There is a possibility that these two versions could be out of sync, possible do to the target version changing after a reconcile operation, and in this case an error will be returned to the application on the post call. It is the application developerís responsibility to check the CanPost method prior to calling post and handling the post errors mentioned above thrown during the Post operation.

Post first performs a save and then synchronizes the target version with the current edit version. This results in an explicit commit of any open transactions in the database. The Post operation can not be undone.
