ml_add_column system procedure

Registers information about columns on remote databases for use by named column parameters.

ml_add_column ( 




VARCHAR(128). The version name.


VARCHAR(128). The table name.


VARCHAR(128). The column name.


VARCHAR(128). Reserved for future use. Set to null.


This procedure populates the ml_column MobiLink system table with information about the columns on the remote database. The information is used by named row parameters.


ml_add_column calls must be executed in the same order that the columns exist in the remote database table. Failing to do so may result in incorrect data.

You need to run this system procedure if both of the following are true:

  • Your SQL scripts contain named parameters for columns (for example, o.column-name and r.column-name).

  • You are not using the Create Synchronization Model Wizard.

Even if you are using the Create Synchronization Model Wizard, if you modify the remote schema outside Model mode, you need to use this stored procedure to send information about columns that are not registered in ml_column.

To delete all entries for the table name in the given script version, set the column name to null.
