You need to set your DM sync, at least for this run, to sync ONEWAY only from the Desktop to the BlackBerry device.
I've done this many many times, on many devices.
As for Mr. BB Techsupport's advice above, I'd highly recommend you ignore it.
Hi, thanks for your tips. I already have set the DM sync config to sync one way. However, unless I actually have something changed on the computer side, DM does not sync the entry. This makes me understand the DM algorhythm better. It does not compare the two sides for differences, but rather checks either side for any recent changes, then transfers the change to the other side. If a change has been made on both sides, then there is a conflict, and it will ask you which side should override. But again, it does not analyze and compare the two sides for differences denovo each time you sync. That is my theory... This is very different from the Palm Hotsync that I am used to, which does actually compare the two sides each time you plug in.
