SnapshotJobID 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 SnapshotJobID property returns a system-generated value uniquely identifying the SQL Server Agent job that implements initial snapshot-generation of third-party published article data.

String

Read-only

HRESULT GetSnapshotJobID(SQLDMO_LPBSTR pRetVal);
ms131542.note(en-US,SQL.90).gifNote:
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 property returns an empty string if no snapshot job is associated with the third-party publication. To associate a snapshot job with a third-party publication, a user must create a SQL Server Agent job that implements initial snapshot-generation of third-party published article data and then associate the snapshot job with a third-party publication by setting snapshot job name using the SnapshotAgent property of the DistributionPublication2 object.

ms131542.note(en-US,SQL.90).gifNote:
If an application calls SnapshotJobID on an instance of SQL Server version 7.0 with the DistributionPublication2 object, the constant, SQLDMO_E_SQL80ONLY, and the message "This property or method requires Microsoft SQL Server 2000 or later" are returned.
