Caution note Caution

This stored procedure can cause schema changes not to be replicated. It should only be used to resolve issues after other methods, such as reinitialization, have already been tried or are too expensive in terms of performance.

sp_markpendingschemachange [@publication = ] 'publication'
    [ , [ @schemaversion = ] schemaversion ]
    [ , [ @status = ] 'status' ]

[@publication= ] 'publication'

Is the name of the publication. publication is sysname, with no default.

[ @schemaversion= ] schemaversion

Identifies a pending schema change. schemaversion is int, with a default value of 0. Use sp_enumeratependingschemachanges (Transact-SQL) to list the pending schema changes for the publication.

[ @status= ] 'status'

Is whether a pending schema change will be skipped. status is nvarchar(10) with a default value of active. If the value of status is skipped, then the selected schema change will not be replicated.

0 (success) or 1 (failure)
