Altering existing publications

After you have created a publication, you can alter it by adding, modifying, or deleting articles, or by renaming the publication. If an article is modified, the entire specification of the modified article must be entered.

You can perform these tasks using Sybase Central or with the ALTER PUBLICATION statement.

Notes
  • Publications can be altered only by the DBA or the publication's owner.

  • Be careful. In a running MobiLink setup, altering publications may cause errors and can lead to loss of data. If the publication you are altering has any subscriptions, then you must treat this change as a schema upgrade. See Schema changes in remote clients.
