Thanks Roger. I was hoping to use SSIS. Have you had to refresh a database (mine's in test) that was acting as a publisher and distributor to another database? If someone tells me that this can be done and possibly some things to watch out for to not break replication, I would be very grateful. My only past experience (on another job) with replication was hourly snapshot and it wasn 't complicated. I am studying replication now but I'm hoping to try to get this issue solved sooner than I'll be able to turn myself into an advanced replication student though.
I will definitely mark my post as answered when I have at least a little more info. Thanks everyone for reading my post.
