No dramas.

That didn't occur in this case.  I tried to overwrite an existing memory
with different data (in this case a different frequency (all other data
was the same) and it didn't prompt either way.

How about this concept, if it is not too difficult...
Prompt at the time the first record conflict is encountered.  Display
the old and proposed entries and offer the options "Replace Yes, No, Yes
to All, No to All"  If Yes or No options are selected the same prompt
will occur on the next conflict.  The "to All" options would remove the
requirement for further prompts for the rest of the Import.  This
concept would allow you to remove the checkbox all together.
