EnumThirdPartyPublications2 Method

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 EnumThirdPartyPublications2 method returns a QueryResults object that enumerates publications originating from heterogeneous data sources.


object
.EnumThirdPartyPublications2( 
[ bstrDistributionDBName ] , 
[ bstrVendorName ])asQueryResults

object

Expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list.

bstrDistributionDBName

Optional. String that identifies an existing Microsoft SQL Server replication distribution database by name. When specified, restricts result set membership to those publications implemented in the named database.

bstrVendorName

Optional. String used to filter the result set by vendor name.

HRESULT EnumThirdPartyPublications2(
LPSQLDMOQUERYRESULTS *ppResults, 
SQLDMO_LPCSTR pszDistributionDBName, 
SQLDMO_LPCSTR pszVendorName);

A QueryResults object that contains one result set defined by these columns.

repl_freq

tinyint

thirdparty_flag

When TRUE, the publication derives from a heterogeneous source.

vendor_name

nvarchar(100)

Name of vendor whose application created the publication.

An application can call the EnumThirdPartyVendorNames method to retrieve a distinct list of third-party vendor names. By specifying a specific vendor name in the bstrVendorName parameter, the application could then call EnumThirdPartyPublications2 method to enumerate publications created by that vendor.

If bstrVendorName is set to 'others' only third-party publications where the vendor_name column contains NULL or is empty are returned.

ms135090.note(en-US,SQL.90).gifNote:
If an application calls EnumThirdPartyPublications2 on an instance of SQL Server version 7.0 and the bstrVendorName parameter is not NULL, the constant, SQLDMO_E_SQL80ONLY, and the message "This property or method requires Microsoft SQL Server 2000 or later" are returned. EnumThirdPartyPublications2 can be used with SQL Server 7.0 and Microsoft SQL Server 2000 or later if the bstrVendorName parameter is NULL.
