I Hot Sync at work and at home on a Powerbook and at work on a G5 (one has a slightly newer system version that the other), and never had any problems until recently when I began to get duplicate dates in my calendar. Now I am seeing that some events I add at work do not transfer to my Mac at home when I Hot Sync and vice versa. My Palm has some dates from both sources but I'm not sure it has all my events I have entered. While I was trying to figure out what events are missing from the calendar on my office computer, I am finding that when I use the search function on my Palm Desktop, it will not locate evetns that I know are on my calendar (I tested by adding a unique name in an event and searching for it, and the search did not find it).

I am stumped about how to fix this and what the problem is since this system was working fine for quite some time before thsi problem began. Anyone have any ideas about what teh problem is, or how I can fix it? I fear that I am going to have to manually go through both the calendars at home and at work adn re-enter multiple events. But even if I do that, I am worried that if I can't find events when I search (and I know they are in the calendar), there is something terribly wrong with the aaplication or my data files.

I'm not exactly sure when it comes to the Mac Hotsync Manager, but in the PC version there is an option to turn on so you can Sync with Multiple COmputers and options to choose from in terms of dealing with duplicates etc. It may be that these options have some how been changed accidentally.

If you're willing to splash out some cash, buy Missing Sync 5 for Palm ( It's a touch more reliable and works nicely with iSync, as well as supporting AvantGo and a few other niceties.

The downside: It's US$40. Well worth the money in my opinion, but still a shame that Palm Desktop isn't up to the job.
