DROP SUBSCRIPTION statement [SQL Remote]

Use this statement to drop a subscription for a user from a publication.

DROP SUBSCRIPTION TO publication-name [ ( subscription-value ) ]
 FOR subscriber-id, ...
subscription-value: string
subscriber-id: string
  • publication-name   The name of the publication to which the user is being subscribed. This can include the owner of the publication.

  • subscription-value   A string that is compared to the subscription expression of the publication. This value is required because a user can have more than one subscription to a publication.

  • subscriber-id   The user ID of the subscriber to the publication.


Drops a SQL Remote subscription for a user ID to a publication in the current database. The user ID will no longer receive updates when data in the publication is changed.

In SQL Remote, publications and subscriptions are two-way relationships. If you drop a subscription for a remote user to a publication on a consolidated database, you should also drop the subscription for the consolidated database on the remote database to prevent updates on the remote database being sent to the consolidated database.
