I need instructions on how to "filter"
contacts when syncing with my desktop.
I'm using an IPAQ3630 and keep my "personal" contacts on it. When I sync with my work
Desktop I don't want my "personal" contacts to be written to my Desktops Contacts Folder, but I want ALL Contacts written to my IPAQ. Using ActiveSync, if I uncheck the "Contacts" box and leave the "Contacts" unresolved, I won't be able to add/change any Contacts on my IPAQ or my Desktop. The Palm Pilot (Hotsync) had an option to "filter" Contacts, but I can't seem to get ActiveSync to do this.
Anyone know of a way around this or if there
is another "sync" program out there that will
allow "filtering"?
Thanks for your help.

Don't know the answer but I would sure like to, as I'm trying to accomplish the same thing.

Anybody know?

The only solution i found to this problem is to create categories in your contacts, such as business or private...

Note: You must assign contacts to categories on your mobile device or desktop computer. If you create a custom category on your device, you must also create the category on your desktop computer.

After this in Activesync options, you can select to sync contacts only in a particular category...

hope this helps

For some reason I am unable to specify the category of contact I want to synchronize from my Pocket PC (2002) and Outlook 2007. I have two computers, one is my personal laptop which is running an earlier version out Outlook and my business computer which is running 2007. I synchronize everything with my personal laptop, but I only want to synchronize business contacts with my business computer. I have all my contacts categorizes as either personal, business, or company -- basically the business category is used for businesss that I use for personally reason. In ActiveSync on my business computer I keep telling it to only synchronize the company category. However, it seems to contactly grab the same 12 contacts that are in either Personal or Business, but refuses to grab the two Company contacts. It ignores the other 100+ contacts in the Pocket PC. I made sure that the same categories were in contacts on my business computer so that they would match.

When I look at the settings for the contact synchronization, those personal and business contacts show up in the "synchronize only the following contacts" section checked -- even though I only had the "synchronize only those contacts in the following categories" checked with the Company category box checked (the personal and busess boxes were not). I removed all the checks from the individual contacts listed, then checked the "only these contacts" button again. It just seems to keep reverting back and refuses to synchronize the Company contacts. It's really frustrating.
