We have a snapshot-merge replication on SQL 2K. The snapshots, both global and dynamic, works fine to create. It also works fine to create the database on the subscriber and fill it with data from the snapshot. The problems come when we try to synchronize. The synchronization times out and the merge reports :

"The process could not drop one or more tables because the tables being used are being used by other publications."

Do any of you know about this problem!
