Selecting Specific tables & columns for new subscriber in existing Transaction Replication Publication

Hi,

We have Transaction replication in place working fine with 3 publications on server A , Subscriptions on 2 different servers B & C.

Now we want to add another subscription on server D to same publications but we want selected tables & selected columns from existing publications to new subscriber(D). Is it possible ?

If yes, will it not impact distribution database as it is same for all the subscribers.

Thanks

No, it's not possible in transactional replication. You need to modify an existing publication or create a new one to contain only specific tables and columns.

Thanks for your time.
Now if I create new publication with selected tables & columns, do I have to create new distributor as well (or already created distribution can be used) ?

Thanks once again.

Hi @ZahidNadeem-8256,

You just need to use the already configured distribution.
