UpdateCommand Property

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 UpdateCommand property specifies record update when altered rows in the source are published to article Subscribers.

.UpdateCommand [= value]


An expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list


A string that defines a Transact-SQL script



HRESULT GetUpdateCommand(SQLDMO_LPBSTR pRetVal);
HRESULT SetUpdateCommand(SQLDMO_LPCSTR NewValue);
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 using SysFreeString.

The format and contents of the UpdateCommand property must match those specified for the @upd_cmd argument of the sp_addarticle system stored procedure. For more information, see sp_addarticle (Transact-SQL).

If an application sets UpdateCommand after the initial snapshot has been created, a new snapshot must be generated and then reapplied to each subscription. Snapshots are applied when the next scheduled snapshot and distribution agent run.
