Enables the use of an interactive resolver for the article.
Disables the use of an interactive resolver for the article.
Custom resolver for the article. Applies only to a table article.
Table-level permissions are not checked.
Table-level permissions are checked at the Publisher before INSERT statements made at the Subscriber are applied at the Publisher.
Table-level permissions are checked at the Publisher before UPDATE statements made at the Subscriber are applied at the Publisher.
Table-level permissions are checked at the Publisher before DELETE statements at the Subscriber are applied at the Publisher.
Turns on column level tracking. Applies only to a table article.
Column level tracking cannot be used when publishing tables with more than 246 columns.
Turns off column level tracking and leaves conflict detection at the row level. Applies only to a table article.
Compensating actions are performed when errors occur during synchronization. For more information, see sp_addmergearticle.
Compensating actions are not performed, which is the default behavior. For more information, see sp_addmergearticle.
Although data in the affected rows might appear to be out of convergence, as soon as you address any errors, changes can be applied and data will converge. If the source table for an article is already published in another publication, then the value of compensate_for_errors must be the same for both articles.
Path and name of an optional article schema script used to create the article in the subscription database.
DELETE statements are replicated, which is the default behavior.
DELETE statements are not replicated.
Setting delete_tracking to false results in non-convergence, and deleted rows need to be manually removed.
Descriptive entry for the article.
Name of the owner of the object in the subscription database, if not dbo.
bigint that specifies the range size to use when assigning new identity values if the article has identityrangemanagementoption set to auto or auto_identity_range set to true. Applies to a table article only. For more information, see the "Merge Replication" section of Replicating Identity Columns.
Disables automatic identity range management. Marks identity columns using NOT FOR REPLICATION to enable manual identity range handling. For more information, see Replicating Identity Columns.
Disables all identity range management.
A conflict is detected if changes are made anywhere in the logical record. Requires that logical_record_level_conflict_resolution be set to true.
Default conflict detection is used as specified by column_tracking.
Entire winning logical record overwrites the losing logical record.
Winning rows are not constrained to the logical record.
The filtering for the article either is static or does not yield a unique subset of data for each partition, i.e. an "overlapping" partition.
The partitions are overlapping, and DML updates made at the Subscriber cannot change the partition to which a row belongs.
The filtering for the article yields non-overlapping partitions, but multiple Subscribers can receive the same partition.
The filtering for the article yields non-overlapping partitions that are unique for each subscription.
If you specify a value of 3 for partition_options, there can be only a single subscription for each partition of data in that article. If a second subscription is created in which the filtering criterion of the new subscription resolves to the same partition as the existing subscription, the existing subscription is dropped.
If the table already exists at the Subscriber, no action is taken.
Issues a delete based on the WHERE clause in the subset filter.
Drops the table before re-creating it.
Truncates the destination table.
int that indicates the processing order of articles in a merge publication.
bigint that specifies the range size allocated to a Subscriber with a server subscription if the article has identityrangemanagementoption set to auto or auto_identity_range set to true. This identity range is reserved for a republishing Subscriber to allocate to its own Subscribers. Applies to a table article only. For more information, see the "Merge Replication" section of Replicating Identity Columns.
Article is also published in a transactional publication.
Article is not also published in a transactional publication.
Is used to specify additional information required by a custom resolver. Some of the Microsoft Resolvers require a column provided as input to the resolver. resolver_info is nvarchar(255), with a default of NULL. For more information, see Microsoft COM-Based Resolvers.
For more information, see the Remarks section later in this topic.
Disables scripting by the Snapshot Agent and uses the script provided in creation_script.
Generates the object creation script (CREATE TABLE, CREATE PROCEDURE, and so on).
Generates a corresponding clustered index.
Converts user-defined data types to base data types at the Subscriber. This option cannot be used when there is a CHECK or DEFAULT constraint on a user-defined type (UDT) column, if a UDT column is part of the primary key, or if a computed column references a UDT column.
Generates corresponding nonclustered indexes.
Includes declared referential integrity on the primary keys.
Replicates user triggers on a table article, if defined.
Replicates FOREIGN KEY constraints. If the referenced table is not part of a publication, all FOREIGN KEY constraints on a published table are not replicated.
Replicates CHECK constraints.
Replicates column-level collation.
Replicates extended properties associated with the published article source object.
Replicates unique keys if defined on a table article.
Generates ALTER TABLE statements when scripting constraints.
Replicates CHECK constraints as NOT FOR REPLICATION so that the constraints are not enforced during synchronization.
Replicates FOREIGN KEY constraints as NOT FOR REPLICATION so that the constraints are not enforced during synchronization.
Replicates filegroups associated with a partitioned table or index.
Replicates the partition scheme for a partitioned table.
Replicates the partition scheme for a partitioned index.
Replicates table statistics.
Replicates default Bindings
Replicates rule Bindings
Replicates the full-text index
XML schema collections bound to xml columns are not replicated.
Replicates indexes on xml columns.
Create any schemas not already present on the subscriber.
Converts xml columns to ntext on the Subscriber.
Converts large object data types (nvarchar(max), varchar(max), and varbinary(max)) that were introduced in SQL Server 2005 to data types that are supported on SQL Server 2000. For information about how these types are mapped, see the "Mapping New Data Types for Earlier Versions" section in Using Multiple Versions of SQL Server in a Replication Topology.
Attempt to drop dependencies to any objects that are not part of the publication.
Use this option to replicate the FILESTREAM attribute if it is specified on varbinary(max) columns. Do not specify this option if you are replicating tables to SQL Server 2005 Subscribers. Replicating tables that have FILESTREAM columns to SQL Server 2000 Subscribers is not supported, regardless of how this schema option is set. See related option 0x800000000.
Converts date and time data types (date, time, datetimeoffset, and datetime2) that are introduced in SQL Server 2008 to data types that are supported on earlier versions of SQL Server. For information about how these types are mapped, see the "Mapping New Data Types for Earlier Versions" section in Using Multiple Versions of SQL Server in a Replication Topology.
Replicates the compression option for data and indexes. For more information, see Creating Compressed Tables and Indexes.
Set this option to store FILESTREAM data on its own filegroup at the Subscriber. If this option is not set, FILESTREAM data is stored on the default filegroup. Replication does not create filegroups; therefore, if you set this option, you must create the filegroup before you apply the snapshot at the Subscriber. For more information about how to create objects before you apply the snapshot, see Executing Scripts Before and After the Snapshot Is Applied.
See related option 0x100000000.
Converts common language runtime (CLR) user-defined types (UDTs) to varbinary(max) so that columns of type UDT can be replicated to Subscribers that are running SQL Server 2005.
Converts the hierarchyid data type to varbinary(max) so that columns of type hierarchyid can be replicated to Subscribers that are running SQL Server 2005. For more information about how to use hierarchyid columns in replicated tables, see hierarchyid (Transact-SQL).
Replicates any filtered indexes on the table. For more information about filtered indexes, see Filtered Index Design Guidelines.
Converts the geography and geometry data types to varbinary(max) so that columns of these types can be replicated to Subscribers that are running SQL Server 2005.
Replicates indexes on columns of type geography and geometry.
System auto-generates a valid schema option for the article.
Initial processing script to publish the table is run.
The initial processing script to publish the table is run the next time the Snapshot Agent runs.
A data stream optimization is used when replicating binary large object columns. However, certain merge replication functionalities, such as logical records, can still prevent the stream optimization from being used. stream_blob_columns is set to true when FILESTREAM is enabled. This allows replication of FILESTREAM data to perform optimally and reduce memory utilization. To force FILESTREAM table articles to not use blob streaming, set stream_blob_columns to false.
Enabling this memory optimization might hurt the performance of the Merge Agent during synchronization. This option should only be used when replicating columns that contain megabytes of data.
The optimization is not used when replicating binary large object columns.
No restrictions on updates made at a Subscriber with a client subscription; changes are uploaded to the Publisher. Changing this property may require that existing Subscribers be reinitialized.
Changes are allowed at a Subscriber with a client subscription, but they are not uploaded to the Publisher.
Changes are not allowed at a Subscriber with a client subscription.
WHERE clause specifying the horizontal filtering. Applies only to a table article.
Important For performance reasons, we recommended that you not apply functions to column names in parameterized row filter clauses, such as LEFT([MyColumn]) = SUSER_SNAME(). If you use HOST_NAME in a filter clause and override the HOST_NAME value, you might have to convert data types by using CONVERT. For more information about best practices for this case, see the section "Overriding the HOST_NAME() Value" in Parameterized Row Filters.
Percentage value used for Subscribers running SQL Server Compact 3.5 SP2 or earlier versions of SQL Server. threshold controls when the Merge Agent assigns a new identity range. When the percentage of values specified in threshold is used, the Merge Agent creates a new identity range. Used when identityrangemanagementoption is set to auto or auto_identity_range is set to true. Applies to a table article only. For more information, see the "Merge Replication" section of Replicating Identity Columns.
