To my knowledge replication can me implemented (using sql server 2005 standard edition) 1.using sql server management studio 2.using RMO programming 3.using transact sql procedures. Correct me if i am wrong. i am new to this topic. which would be the best way to implement replication. I am working with merge replication using sql server management studio. Which doesnt seem to work. Would anyone provide a link or guide me in creating a merger replication on same server but different database. Please help me with it.
