SourceObjectName Property

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 SourceObjectName property identifies the Microsoft SQL Server database object providing article data.


.SourceObjectName [= value]


  • object
    An expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list

  • value
    A string that identifies a SQL Server table, view, or stored procedure by name

Data Type



Read/write when using the SQL Distributed Management Objects (SQL-DMO) object to create an article. Read-only for SQL-DMO objects referencing existing articles.

Prototype (C/C++)

HRESULT GetSourceObjectName(SQLDMO_LPBSTR pRetVal);
HRESULT SetSourceObjectName(SQLDMO_LPCSTR NewValue);


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.
