Publishing only some columns in a table

You can create a publication that contains all the rows, but only some of the columns of a table from Sybase Central or by listing the columns in the CREATE PUBLICATION statement.


There is an existing remote database and you have DBA authority to connect to that database.

Context and remarks

  • If you create two publications that include the same table with different column subsets, then you may only create a synchronization subscription for one of them.

  • An article must include all the primary key columns in the table.

To publish only some columns in a table using the CREATE PUBLICATION statement, execute a CREATE PUBLICATION statement that specifies the publication name and the table name. List the published columns in parenthesis following the table name.
