This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.
The LastDistributionSummaryTime property returns the date and time when the last synchronization summary text was logged by Distribution Agent.
HRESULT GetLastDistributionSummaryTime(SQLDMO_LPBSTR pRetVal);
SQL Distributed Management Objects (SQL-DMO) strings are always returned as OLE BSTR objects. A C/C++ application obtains a reference to the string. The application must release the reference by using SysFreeString.
LastDistributionSummaryTime returns the data formatted as YYYYMMDD hh:mm:ss.fff.
Represents the year in four digits.
Represents the month in two digits (zero padded).
Represents the day of the month in two digits (zero padded).
Represents the hour using two digits, a twenty-four hour clock and zero padding.
Represents the minute in two digits (zero padded).
Represents the second in two digits (zero padded).
Represents the fractional part of the second in three digits.
For example, the value 20040512 18:12:00.000 is interpreted as 6:12 P.M., May 12, 2004.
The LastDistributionSummaryTime property applies only to push subscriptions. The property will return an empty string for pull or anonymous subscriptions.
If an application calls LastDistributionSummaryTimeon an instance of SQL Server version 7.0, the constant, SQLDMO_E_SQL80ONLY, and the message "This property or method requires Microsoft SQL Server 2000 or later" are returned.
