ReplicationDropColumn Method

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 ReplicationDropColumn method removes a column from a table published in one or more publications.




  • object
    Expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list.

  • ColumnName
    Name of the column to remove.

  • SchemaChangeScript
    Optional string that specifies a schema change script to propagate to the subscriber. Valid for transactional replication only. Default is NULL.

Prototype (C/C++)

HRESULT ReplicationDropColumn(
SQLDMO_LPCSTR pszSchemaChangeScript);


You can run the ReplicationAddColumn method to add a column to a published table.


If an application calls ReplicationDropColumn on an instance of SQL Server version 7.0, the constant, SQLDMO_E_SQL80ONLY, and the message "This property or method requires Microsoft SQL Server 2000 or later" are returned.
