Return Code Values
0 (success) or 1 (failure)
sp_helparticledts is used in snapshot replication and transactional replication.
There are naming conventions, required by the replication agents, which must be followed when naming tasks in a replication Data Transformation Services (DTS) program. For custom tasks, such as an Execute SQL task, the name is a concatenated string consisting of the article name, a prefix, and an optional part. When writing the code, if you are unsure what the task names should be, the result set gives the task names that should be used.
Only members of the sysadmin fixed server role and the db_owner fixed database role can execute sp_helparticledts.
