When starting an edit session, the following error message is displayed:
"Could not edit the data in the folder or database you selected. The current version does not support editing (base, consistent, or closed)[Historical version are not editable.]"
The map document is currently pointing to a historical version.
Use the 'Change Version' tool to point the map document to a transactional version.
When changing to a transactional version, be sure to select 'Transactional' and click a version name. If a transactional version name is not selected before clicking 'OK', the map document still points to a historical version.
