Assembly: Microsoft.SqlServer.Rmo (in Microsoft.SqlServer.Rmo.dll)
The scriptOption parameter determines whether to return a creation script or a deletion script. The method can be used for an existing article on the server or it can be used before you create a new article on the server. For an existing article, call Load or LoadProperties to retrieve article properties from the server before calling .
Any user can call the method. However, a script for an existing object on the server is returned only for members of the sysadmin fixed server role at the Publisher and at the Subscriber (for republishing Subscribers). A script also is returned for members of the db_owner fixed database role on the publication database and by users who are members of the PAL. For a MergeArticle object, a script will be returned for members of the replmonitor fixed database role on the Distributor.
