Hi,

I am using SQL Server 2008 Transactional Replication.
All my publisher, subscriber, remote distributor server all are sql 2008 Enterprise edition, sp3.

Question is ,

How to add article to the publication without re-generating the snapshot?
How to drop article from the publication without re-generating the snapshot?

Is there a way to accomplish this? If so, how to achieve it.

Appreciate your help.

You can drop the article quietly but when you add the article to publication you must need to start the snapshot agent.

dropping the article doesnt need snapshot generation. adding the article to existing publication doesnt need to generate the snapshot for all articles in that publication. you can just run the snapshot for newly added article. if you have data in sync in the newly added article on both publisher n subsriber you need to create a new publication with replication support only sync type.

What are the series of steps or replication stored proc's needed to executed?
