Script Method (Replication Objects)

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 Script method generates a Transact-SQL command batch that can be used to re-create the Microsoft SQL Server component referenced by the SQL Distributed Management Objects (SQL-DMO) object.


object
.Script( [ ScriptType ] , [ ScriptFilePath ] )as String

object

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

ScriptType

Optional. A long integer that overrides default scripting behavior as described in Settings.

ScriptFilePath

Optional. A string that specifies an operating system file as an additional target for the generated Transact-SQL statements script.

HRESULT Script(
SQLDMO_REPSCRIPT_TYPE ScriptType = SQLDMORepScript_Default,
SQLDMO_LPCSTR ScriptFilePath = NULL,
SQLDMO_LPBSTR ScriptText = NULL);

HRESULT Script(
SQLDMO_REPSCRIPT_TYPE ScriptType = SQLDMORepScript_InstallDistributor,
SQLDMO_LPCSTR ScriptFilePath = NULL,
SQLDMO_LPBSTR ScriptText = NULL);
NoteNote

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.

When setting the ScriptType argument specifying multiple behaviors, combine values using an OR logical operator. Use these SQLDMO_REPSCRIPT_TYPE values to set ScriptType.

Constant

Value

Description

SQLDMORepScript_AnsiFile

16777216

Output to a file is written as ANSI character text.

SQLDMORepScript_/AppendToFile

8192

Output is appended to a designated operating system file. If not set, output overwrites any data in an existing, designated file.

SQLDMORepScript_/Creation

16384

Script includes database object creation.

SQLDMORepScript_Default

256

SQLDMORepScript_InstallDistributor.

SQLDMORepScript_Deletion

32768

Script includes deletion of existing database objects.

SQLDMORepScript_/DisableReplicationDB

134217728

Script disables a replication database.

SQLDMORepScript_/EnableReplicationDB

67108864

Script enables a replication database.

SQLDMORepScript_/InstallDistributor

256

Default. The script installs the replication Distributor.

SQLDMORepScript_/InstallPublisher

1024

Script installs a Publisher.

SQLDMORepScript_/InstallReplication

Script installs replication.

SQLDMORepScript_/NoCommandTerm

268435456

No command terminator is added to script commands.

SQLDMORepScript_/NoSubscription

128

Script creation of publication, excluding push subscriptions.

SQLDMORepScript_/PublicationCreation

65536

Script includes publication creation text.

SQLDMORepScript_/PublicationDeletion

131072

Script includes text that removes publications.

SQLDMORepScript_/PullSubscriptionCreation

262144

Script pull subscription creation.

SQLDMORepScript_/PullSubscriptionDeletion

524288

Script pull subscription deletion.

SQLDMORepScript_/ReplicationJobs

4194304

Script creation of replication-related jobs to preserve job schedule and steps. The corresponding job script must be run before the replication script. This constant can only be used with Microsoft SQL Server. Only a member of the sysadmin fixed server role or the owner of a job have access to a job creation script.

SQLDMORepScript_/SubscriptionCreation

262144

Obsolete.

SQLDMORepScript_/SubscriptionDeletion

524288

Obsolete.

SQLDMORepScript_/ToFileOnly

4096

Output generated by an executed script is directed to an operating system file only. If not set, output is available as status or error messages.

SQLDMORepScript_/UnicodeFile

33554432

Output to a file is written as Unicode character text.

SQLDMORepScript_/UninstallDistributor

512

Script removes the replication Distributor.

SQLDMORepScript_/UninstallPublisher

2048

Script removes a Publisher.

SQLDMORepScript_/UninstallReplication

2097152

Script removes replication.

A Transact-SQL command batch as a string.

The Script method of replication objects captures an image of a SQL Server replication installation. For example, using the Script method of the TransArticle object generates a command batch that can be used to create the transactional or snapshot replication article referenced, not the object replicated by the article.

To script the creation of a single pull subscription, call the Script method using SQLDMORepScript_PullSubscriptionCreation on a TransPullSubscription or MergePullSubscription object. To script the removal of a single pull subscription, call the Script method using SQLDMORepScript_PullSubscriptionDeletion on a TransPullSubscription or MergePullSubscription object.

To script the creation of pull subscriptions in the TransPullSubscriptions or MergePullSubscriptions collection, call the Script method using SQLDMORepScript_PullSubscriptionCreation. To script the removal of pull subscriptions from the TransPullSubscriptions or MergePullSubscriptions collection, call the Script method using SQLDMORepScript_PullSubscriptionDeletion.

To script the creation of or dropping pull subscriptions in a database, call the Script method using SQLDMORepScript_PullSubscriptionCreation on a ReplicationDatabase object. To script the removal of pull subscriptions from a database, call the Script method using SQLDMORepScript_PullSubscriptionDeletion on a ReplicationDatabase object.

To script the creation of pull subscriptions on a server, call the Script method using SQLDMORepScript_PullSubscriptionCreation on a ReplicationDatabases collection or Subscriber object. To script the removal of pull subscriptions from a server, call the Script method using SQLDMORepScript_PullSubscriptionDeletion on a ReplicationDatabases collection or Subscriber object.

For SQL-DMO objects publish database objects, SQL-DMO implements the ScriptDestinationObject method to generate command batches that re-create the objects published. For more information, see ScriptDestinationObject Method.

NoteNote

SQL-DMO object scripting methods are fully compatible with an instance of SQL Server version 7.0. However, database compatibility level affects Transact-SQL command batch contents.

When scripting a database with a compatibility level of less than 7.0, or when scripting any of its objects, the resulting Transact-SQL command batch includes only keywords reserved by that level.

Transact-SQL command syntax is always compliant with an instance of SQL Server 7.0. Where provided, you can use optional scripting arguments, such as SQLDMOScript2_NoFG to remove some syntax of an instance of SQL Server 7.0.
