I have a table that is replicated in two different publications. I need to rename the columns. I tried removing the tables from the replication and then altering the columns but for some reason the system thinks that the table is still being replicated. I found some documentation on this for Sql server 2000 but not 2005 and the fix for 2000 will not work in 2005. The error I am getting is Cannot alter column because table is part of replication but it isn't. It has something to with the system not dropping some information.
Has anyone else had this problem in SQL SErver 2005?
