Cause

The toolbar needs to be activated prior to use.

Solution or Workaround

Activation of the Data manager toolbar is the same as activating an extension.

ArcGIS 10:
Navigate to Customize > Extensions and check the box next to ArcPad Data Manager.

ArcGIS 9.3.1 and earlier:
Navigate to Tools > Extensions and check the box next to ArcPad Data Manager.

This needs to be done in both ArcMap and ArcCatalog.
