Is there a way to do replication with out making the schema changes? we want to replicate from our prod configuration tables to a test system but without overriding the schema changes that are in the test system. I was originally thinking that I would use snapshot but I believe that will override any schema changes that are on the test system.

- Article Properties
- Destination Object
- Action if Name is in use
- Keep Existing Object Unchanged

Note that this is a dangerous practice and can cause replication failures when there are schema changes.
