I found an excellent utility that solved my problem, called DateBK5 by 
Pimlico Software. It is proprietary, but after looking around a bit, this 
appeared to have what I needed. I had to download the manual to find the 
solutution, but it did have exactly what I wanted. I was able to purge all 
date records prior to 2004 (and save them in a history database). After 
installing the product I deleted the records and finally got a good sync. 
(For the past few weeks, the Date Book sync was failing and causing an 
incomplete sync).
