An application uses the Replication object to synchronize an existing Microsoft SQL Server subscription. You can also synchronize a subscription you have created in SQL Server Management Studio.
In Microsoft Visual Studio, the application calls the Synchronize and Dispose methods on a single instance of the Replication object. In native applications, you must call the Initialize, Run, and Terminate methods in succession on a single instance of the Replication object.
SQL Server Compact 3.5 subscriptions must always be synchronized with the original Publisher. A SQL Server Compact 3.5 subscription cannot be directly synchronized with another.
