Why are these variables not setting/updating on my card?

I'm trying to use IEdmEnumeratorVariable5::SetVar to update some file card variables based on user input into a windows form.

The code executes, the file is checked out and checked back in with the appropriate comment in the history; however the variables on the card are not updated.

Here is my code - not sure where the problem is.  Hoping someone can see it!

In efforts to make it as concise as possible, I've commented what some of the variables are.  I have confirmed the data in all of my variables is correct at run-time. 


NOTE:  I don't know when this forum introduced this new code recognition feature, but it is awful!!  I could not paste from visual studio to here - it kept trying to interpret things and deleted lines of code, changed expressions, etc.  Very very bad!!  I had to copy everything into notepad and copy/paste from there.  It still kept adding "true" in random inappropriate places wherever I had an "IF" block that had to be deleted, and I lost all formatting so now everything appears blue.  This is the best I could get it to look.  Sorry if it's tough to read.  If you find typos, it's most likely due to editing.  The code does execute - there are no compile errors .
