BUG #56239 (SQLBUG_70)
In a merge publication, there are two different ways to define a conflict:
Column level conflict
Row level conflict
A Column level conflict defines changes made to the same columns as a conflict, and changes to different columns in the same rows will be merged. However, when setting this Column level conflict in merge publication, you can still get a conflict when updating different columns in the same row.
This behavior occurs due to the use of the custom Stored Procedure Resolver.
Use the default Priority based resolver or custom COM object resolver instead of the Stored Procedure Resolver.
