cannot insert rows into Pulled table (RDA)

hello,

I've setup a RDA (Remote Data Access) connection between a PocketPC(Windows CE 5.0) and a SQL Server 2008 Express. Everything works fine (the Pull and the Push), but I can't insert rows into the tables in the SQL Mobile 3.5 database. Pulled tables have Identity rows and Primary keys on the Identity row. I can update and delete rows, but when I try to insert, it give the following error: "A duplicate value cannot be inserted into a unique index. [Table name, Constraint name]"

Insert statement is: "INSERT INTO TB_prdModel(modDesc, catID) values ('test', 1)"

Table TB_prdModel have 3 rows: modID (PK, Identity), modDesc (nvarchar(100)), catID (int).

Anyone have an idea how to fix this please? thanks for your time and help

seems the Identity value of the column is reset to 1 after the Pull. So, either I reset the Identity to the MAX value of all the tables or I change all my tables from INT Identity to GUID. What should I do?

GUID take a LOT more memory than INT and is a pain to work with (not really user-friendly). But INT Identity could cause problem when synchronizing with multiple clients.

What is the best way to sync tables using RDA ??
thanks
