I have multiple handhelds which sync their data via merge replication. from time to time, new core data is imported on the server-database.

for some reasons I keep the old data in the databse and set a flag deactivated = 1

In a filter i download only deactivated = 0 - rows

The core-data I'm talking about are 6 tables, with each hundred thousands of rows, where about 30000 thousand are sent to the handhelds duing syncing.

The .OUT-File in the MS SQL CE-folder on the server has about 10 MB (!)

On syncining via gprs I receive this error: SQL CE error 28562 - Failed to create the Delete message to send to the Server

any ideas how to handle this problem?

Mobile DB: SQL Server CE 3.1 SQL Server 2008 R2

Do you really need all this data on the device? – ErikEJ Apr 5 '13 at 8:41
Well I don't know which data i need excatcly, but it can be all of the data in this pool. And it has to work also without internet-connection, that's the reason why I use replication. – Karl Apr 10 '13 at 9:05
