0x0a = Table.

0x20 = Procedure schema only.

0x40 = View schema only or indexed view schema only.

0x80 = Function schema only.
objid int The identifier for the published object.

0 = Issues a separate UPDATE for each column changed.

maxversion_at_cleanup int The maximum generation that is cleaned up the next time the Merge Agent runs.
processing_order int Indicates the processing order of articles in a merge publication; where a value of 0 indicates that the article is unordered, and articles are processed in order from lowest to highest value. If two articles have the same value, they are processed concurrently. For more information, see Specify the Processing Order of Merge Articles.
upload_options tinyint Defines whether changes can be made at or uploaded from the Subscriber, which can be one of the following values.

0 = There are no restrictions on updates made at the Subscriber; all changes are uploaded to the Publisher.

1 = Changes are allowed at the Subscriber, but they are not uploaded to the Publisher.

2 = Changes are not allowed at the Subscriber.
published_in_tran_pub bit Indicates that an article in a merge publication is also published in a transactional publication.

0 = The article is not published in a transactional article.

1 = The article is also published in a transactional article.
lightweight bit Identified for informational purposes only. Not supported. Future compatibility is not guaranteed.

delete_tracking bit Indicates if deletes are replicated.

0 = Deletes are not replicated.

1 = Deletes are replicated, which is the default behavior for merge replication.

When the value of delete_tracking is 0, rows deleted at the Subscriber must be manually removed at the Publisher, and rows deleted at the Publisher must be manually removed at the Subscriber.

Note: A value of 0 results in non-convergence.
compensate_for_errors bit Indicates if compensating actions are taken when errors are encountered during synchronization.

0 = Compensating actions are disabled.

1 = Changes that cannot be applied at a Subscriber or Publisher always lead to compensating actions to undo these changes, which is the default behavior for merge replication.

range bigint The size of the consecutive identity values that would be assigned to subscribers in an adjustment.
threshold int The identity range threshold percentage.
stream_blob_columns bit Indicates whether the streaming optimization for binary large object columns is used. 1 means that the optimization is attempted.
preserve_rowguidcol bit Indicates whether replication uses an existing rowguid column. A value of 1 means that an existing ROWGUIDCOL column is used. 0 means that replication added the ROWGUIDCOL column.
partition_view_id int Identifies the view that defines a subscriber partition.
repl_view_id int Identified for informational purposes only. Not supported. Future compatibility is not guaranteed.

logical_record_view int A view that outputs the top-level parent article rowguid corresponding to each child rowguid.
logical_record_deleted_view_rule sysname Similar to logical_record_view, except that it shows child rows in the "deleted" table in update and delete triggers.
logical_record_level_conflict_detection bit Indicates whether conflicts should be detected at the logical record level or at the row or column level.

0 = Row- or column-level conflict detection is used.

1 = Logical record conflict detection is used, where a change in a row at the Publisher and change in a separate row the same logical record at the Subscriber is handled as a conflict.

When this value is 1, only logical record-level conflict resolution can be used.
logical_record_level_conflict_resolution bit Indicates whether conflicts should be resolved at the logical record-level or at the row- or column-level.

0 = Row- or column-level resolution is used.

1 = In case of a conflict, the entire logical record from the winner overwrites the entire logical record on the losing side.

A value of 1 can be used with both logical record-level detection and with row- or column-level detection.
partition_options tinyint Defines the way in which data in the article is partitioned, which enables performance optimizations when all rows belong in only one partition or in only one subscription. The partition_options can be one of the following values.

0 = The filtering for the article either is static or does not yield a unique subset of data for each partition, that is, an "overlapping" partition.

1 = The partitions are overlapping, and DML updates made at the Subscriber cannot change the partition to which a row belongs.

2 = The filtering for the article yields non-overlapping partitions, but multiple Subscribers can receive the same partition.
