    [ , [ @column = ] 'column'
    
[ , [ @operation = ] 'operation'
    
[ , [ @schema_replication = ] 'schema_replication' ]
    [ , [ @force_invalidate_snapshot = ] force_invalidate_snapshot ]
    [ , [ @force_reinit_subscription = ] force_reinit_subscription ]

Arguments

[@publication =] 'publication'

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

[@article =] 'article'

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

[@column =] 'column'

[@operation =] 'operation'

Is the replication status. operation is nvarchar(4), with a default of ADD. add marks the column for replication. drop unmarks the column.

[@schema_replication=] 'schema_replication'

Specifies that a schema change will be propagated when the Distribution Agent or Merge Agent runs. schema_replication is nvarchar(5), with a default of FALSE. If false, a schema change will not be propagated.

[@force_invalidate_snapshot = ] force_invalidate_snapshot

Enables or disables the ability to have a snapshot invalidated. force_invalidate_snapshot is a bit, with a default of 0. 0 specifies that changes to the merge article will not cause the snapshot to be invalid. 1 specifies that changes to the merge article may cause the snapshot to be invalid, and if that is the case, a value of 1 gives permission for the new snapshot to occur.

[@force_reinit_subscription = ] force_reinit_subscription

Enables or disables the ability to have the subscription reinitializated. force_reinit_subscription is a bit with a default of 0. 0 specifies that changes to the merge article will not cause the subscription to be reinitialized. 1 specifies that changes to the merge article may cause the subscription to be reinitialized, and if that is the case, a value of 1 gives permission for the subscription reinitialization to occur.

Return Code Values

0 (success) or 1 (failure)

Remarks

sp_mergearticlecolumn is used in merge replication.

If an application sets a new vertical partition after the initial snapshot is created, a new snapshot must be generated and reapplied to each subscription. Snapshots are applied when the next scheduled snapshot and distribution or merge agent run.
