This stored procedure is executed at the Publisher on the publication database.

Is the name of the table. table_name is sysname, with no default.

Return Code Values

0 (success) or 1 (failure)


sp_addtabletocontents is used only in merge replication.

The rows in the table_name are referred to by their rowguidcol and the references are added to the merge tracking tables. sp_addtabletocontents should be used after bulk copying data into a table that is published using merge replication. The stored procedure initiates tracking of the rows that were copied and ensures that the new rows will be included in the next synchronization.


Only members of the sysadmin fixed server role or db_owner fixed database role can execute sp_addtabletocontents.
