  2. Expand the Replication folder, and then expand the Local Publications folder.

  3. Right-click the publication for which you want to view conflicts, and then click View Conflicts.

  4. In the Select Conflict Table dialog box, select a database, publication, and table for which to view conflicts.

  5. In the Replication Conflict Viewer, you can:

    • Filter rows with the buttons to the right of the upper grid.
    • Select a row in the upper grid to display information on that row in the lower grid.
    • Select one or more rows in the upper grid, and then click Remove, which removes the row from the conflicts metadata table.
    • Click the properties button () to view more information on a column involved in a conflict.
    • Select Log the details of this conflict to log conflict data to a file. To specify a location for the file, point to the View menu, and then click Options. Enter a value, or click the browse button (...), and then navigate to the appropriate file. Click OK to close the Options dialog box.
