Hi All --

I am not big on administration stuff, so be patient with me! I may be a twit ...

Running SQL 2000 ..... We have transactional replication set up. I have created a couple of new tables and now I'd like for them to be replicated. However, from what I've experienced and read, it seems that I need to re-initialize the subscription and re-send a snapshot to the replicated databases in order to add these new tables .. is that correct? Is there an easier/quicker way just to start replicating the two new tables?

translated for Peso:

I have a doubt. How do u get teh table to replicate? thx!

What I do to add a new table is drop replication then rebuild it.

But you can create a new article on the publisher, then push it to the subscriber. I prefer to use one article for maintenance reasons, although I believe they recommend one article per object for performance reasons.

The replication >should< be smart enough to initialize only the tables that are new to the publication. At least I think that is how it worked the last time I tried this. Been a while.

Yeah, I swear I got that work before as well, but I can't seem to get things to happen unless I mark it for initialization and then nothing happens until I re-run the snapshot agent which then uploads everything. I am just trying to avoid that and hoping maybe there were some specific steps that I should be taking.

I'll give it shot early tomorrow morning ...

ah, I got it now. Don't mark for re-init. Just run the snapshot agent, and then run the distribution agent. That will then just send out the new articles.

Thanks for the input!

I was going to go back and delete my original post and replace it with "SOLVED! NO THANKS TO SQLTEAM!" but I figured that would be too much!
