Article.Remove Method


Removes an existing article on the currently connected instance of SQL Server based on the current properties of the TransArticle object or the MergeArticle object.

 void Remove();
public void Remove ();
member this.Remove : unit -> unit
Public Sub Remove ()


The Remove method can be called by members of the sysadmin fixed server role at the Publisher. It can also be called by members of the db_owner fixed database role on the publication database.

Calling Remove is equivalent to executing sp_droparticle (Transact-SQL) for transactional or snapshot replication or executing sp_dropmergearticle (Transact-SQL) for merge replication.
