    Unanswered: distributing data to client sites...

    We have a large SQL database, and we need to send out updated records to many clients' sites which are not connected.

    We currently have a tool which looks at the audit log of changes we made, creates a file based on this, which is then emailed to our clients. They then run a tool we created to remerge the changes.

    I suspect SQL server replication might make all this possible. Am I right? Can SQL server produce a file automatically which can be applied to a remote database to update the tables as appropriate? From looking at some replication stuff it looks to me like you have to have the servers on the same network.

    Not necessarily. But your sysadmin needs to know his/her stuff.
