Publish only some rows in a table

To create a publication that contains only some of the rows in a table, you must write a search condition that matches only the rows you want to publish. Use of one of the following clauses in your search condition:

  • SUBSCRIBE BY clause   Use the SUBSCRIBE BY clause when multiple subscribers to a publication receive different rows from a table.

    The SUBSCRIBE BY clause is recommended when your SQL Remote system requires a large number of subscriptions. The SUBSCRIBE BY clause allows many subscriptions to be associated with a single publication, whereas the WHERE clause does not. Subscribers receive rows depending on the value of a supplied expression.

    Publications using a SUBSCRIBE BY clause are more compact, easier to understand, and provide better performance than maintaining several WHERE clause publications.

  • WHERE clause   Use a WHERE clause to include a subset of rows in an article. All subscribers to the publication containing this article receive the rows that satisfy the WHERE clause.

    All unpublished rows must have a default value. Otherwise, when the remote database tries to insert new rows from the consolidated database, an error occurs.

    You can combine a WHERE clause in an article.

    The database server must add information to the transaction log, and scan the transaction log to send messages, in direct proportion to the number of publications. The WHERE clause does not allow many subscriptions to be associated with a single publication; however the SUBSCRIBE BY clause does.
