We've been able to identify the cause of this new error.  You could encounter this error with 8.02 or ACT! 2007 9.0.  The error will occur if the Remote/Subscriber database has been restored from a previous backup - specifically, a backup which was made *prior* to any subsequent sync sessions.

I don't think there was a complete solution till ACT! 2007 9.0a. But you might try adding Hotfix 5 (to all machines) from http://tinyurl.com/6bx8u6

If that doesn't work, you should cut a new RDB for the user.

Thanks for the help. Unfortunatly, I could not get the sales rep (the user), to get back to me before the sync deadline expired. I'm, creating a new RDB.
