Follow up to this: Spatial Database Connection String
I am trying to reconcile a versioned geodatabase that has only one version, DEFAULT. I am following the steps from the ESRI documentation: A quick tour of reconciling a version. It seems like there is no reason to have to do this, but the "OLE DB" table and "spatial" table are out of sync until I do this. As per comment from @mwalker in linked question above:
If you're using versioned SDE then you may not see changes right away, since versions are handled with delta tables and views. The source tables won't get updated until the version is reconciled.
