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 SubsetFilterClause property specifies a Transact-SQL WHERE clause used to partition data horizontally in the merge replication article.
object .SubsetFilterClause [=value]
An dxpression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list
A string of 1,002 characters or fewer that specifies a Transact-SQL WHERE clause
HRESULT GetSubsetFilterClause(SQLDMO_LPBSTR pRetVal); HRESULT SetSubsetFilterClause(SQLDMO_LPCSTR NewValue);
SQL Distributed Management Objects (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.
If an application sets SubsetFilterClause after the initial snapshot has been created, a new snapshot must be generated and then reapplied to each subscription. Snapshots are applied when the next scheduled snapshot and merge agent run.
