SQL Server 2000

Element Characteristics
Characteristic Description

<FieldType> values must conform to SQL Server data types. For more information about SQL Server data types, see "Using Data Types" in SQL Server Books Online.

If you update a <FieldType> element, NSControl Update re-creates the subscription class to which it corresponds. A new subscription table is created, and the existing subscription table is renamed to SubscriptionTableNameOld. Existing subscription table indexes are left unchanged. If you want to transfer data between the old and new subscription tables, it must be done manually.
