Article.PreCreationMethod Property

Gets or sets the action to take when the published object already exists in the subscription database.

Namespace:  Microsoft.SqlServer.Replication
Assembly:  Microsoft.SqlServer.Rmo (in Microsoft.SqlServer.Rmo.dll)
public PreCreationOption PreCreationMethod { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: Microsoft.SqlServer.Replication.PreCreationOption
A PreCreationOption enumeration value that specifies the action.

PreCreationMethod defaults to Drop.

If PreCreationMethod is set after the initial snapshot has been generated, a new snapshot must be generated.

The PreCreationMethod property can be retrieved by members of the sysadmin fixed server role at the Publisher and at the Subscriber (for republishing Subscribers). It can also be retrieved by members of the db_owner fixed database role on the publication database and by users who are members of the PAL. For a MergeArticle object, this property can also be retrieved by members of the replmonitor fixed database role on the Distributor.

The PreCreationMethod property can be set by members of the sysadmin fixed server role at the Publisher. It can also be set by members of the db_owner fixed database role on the publication database.

Retrieving PreCreationMethod is equivalent to executing sp_helparticle (Transact-SQL) for transactional or snapshot replication or executing sp_helpmergearticle (Transact-SQL) for merge replication.

Setting PreCreationMethod is equivalent to executing sp_addarticle (Transact-SQL) or sp_changearticle (Transact-SQL) for transactional or snapshot replication or executing sp_addmergearticle (Transact-SQL) or sp_changemergearticle (Transact-SQL) for merge replication.
