The following code example describes a scope named filtered_customer, and adds two tables to the scope: Customer and CustomerContact. The tables already exist in the server database, so the GetDescriptionForTable method is used to retrieve the schema from the server database. All columns from the Customer table are included, but only two columns from the CustomerContact table are included. To view this code in the context of a complete example, see How To: Execute Database Synchronization (SQL Server).

DbSyncScopeDescription scopeDesc = new DbSyncScopeDescription("filtered_customer");

// Definition for Customer.
DbSyncTableDescription customerDescription =
    SqlSyncDescriptionBuilder.GetDescriptionForTable("Sales.Customer", serverConn);

scopeDesc.Tables.Add(customerDescription);

// Definition for CustomerContact, including the list of columns to include.
Collection<string> columnsToInclude = new Collection<string>();
columnsToInclude.Add("CustomerId");
columnsToInclude.Add("PhoneType");
DbSyncTableDescription customerContactDescription =
    SqlSyncDescriptionBuilder.GetDescriptionForTable("Sales.CustomerContact", columnsToInclude, serverConn);

scopeDesc.Tables.Add(customerContactDescription);


Dim scopeDesc As New DbSyncScopeDescription("filtered_customer")

' Definition for Customer. 
Dim customerDescription As DbSyncTableDescription = _
    SqlSyncDescriptionBuilder.GetDescriptionForTable("Sales.Customer", serverConn)

scopeDesc.Tables.Add(customerDescription)


' Definition for CustomerContact, including the list of columns to include. 
Dim columnsToInclude As New Collection(Of String)()
columnsToInclude.Add("CustomerId")
columnsToInclude.Add("PhoneType")
Dim customerContactDescription As DbSyncTableDescription = _
    SqlSyncDescriptionBuilder.GetDescriptionForTable("Sales.CustomerContact", columnsToInclude, serverConn)

scopeDesc.Tables.Add(customerContactDescription)
