Dear All,


Replication Newbie
As I have created Distribution, Publication and Subscriber on a table "tblTest" of replication type transactional replication. When checked the Replication monitor, got the error as "The initial snapshot for article 'tblTest' is not yet available.". Did work-around and started the "Snapshot Agent". Now got the error as "Cannot DROP TABLE 'dbo.TblTest' because it is being referenced by object 'View_Test'".

Kindly help me to sort out the issue and approach to understand replication.

Can change article properties Action If Name Is In Use from the default of Drop and Recreate to Delete.

Is View_Test an indexed view?

Because the table has a view, you have the option to choose the "If Action Name Is In Use" is a >> "Truncate all data in the existing object", regenerate the snapshot and apply on the subscriber.
