Replication Views (Transact-SQL)

Contain information used by replication in Microsoft SQL Server 2005. These views enable easier access to data in replication system tables. Views are created in a user database when that database is enabled as a publication or subscription database. All replication objects are removed from user databases when the database is removed from a replication topology. The preferred method for accessing replication metadata is by using Replication Stored Procedures.

System views should not be altered directly by any user.
