Unanswered: SQL2000 Replication,modifying the width of a column
Is there a way by which we can modify the width of a column of a table which is being replicated without touching the ongoing transactional replication? This is for MSSQL2000 Transactional Replication.
I know (and successfully tried) that we can add a column to a table and that gets propaged to the replicate database and indeed the added column gets reflected there. How to add a column? sp_repaddcolumn or Right Click on the Publication-Properties and it shows a button to Add a Column.
This is what I have tried for modifying the width of a column of a table participating in Transactional Replication from varchar(10) to varchar(100)
MH (source) -> MH1 (Replicate)
The column col1 had width of varchar(10) and this was altered to varchar(100).
