In certain cases, you
may modify a transaction on your BlackBerry and your desktop with conflicting
values. Ascendo Money supports conflict resolution to resolve these situations.
To select the conflict resolution method you
want Ascendo Money to employ, click on the Ascendo Money Desktop Tools menu and
select Options from the sub-menu. There are three options for conflict
resolution. The default option is Manual. If Manual is selected then Ascendo

resolve the situation. Depending on the information, you may choose to overwrite
the information on your BlackBerry, desktop or maintain both versions.
There are two other options for resolving
conflicts, BlackBerry Wins or Desktop Wins. If you select BlackBerry Wins, then
whenever Ascendo Money detects a conflict, it will automatically overwrite the
version on the Desktop with the version on the BlackBerry. If you select Desktop
Wins, then whenever Ascendo Money detects a conflict, it will automatically
overwrite the version on the BlackBerry with the version on the Desktop.
