In the May, 1996, issue of Pinnacle's Smart Access, Lynn Shanklin and I wrote an article entitled "Manage Replication Conflicts" that covers the ins and outs of replication conflicts and how to minimize and manage them. That article was so popular I still get e-mails every month about it. This was not helped by the fact that the whole article has been included in full (but without source code) on MSDN for the last few years! To see the article, you can go to the Pinnacle site or MSDN on the web. For the code, you can download it from here in the file conflicts.zip. (Pinnacle charges $5.00 for each article. I do not profit from this).
