Exclude delete statements in replication

Hi, Can I exclude delete in SQL replication?
Please tell me how….
Regards, Riya
I believe you can not exclude delete statements in SQL transactional/Merge replication..
[not aplicable in snapshot replication] But if your application grants..can deny delete statement on tables itself. Deepak Kumar –An eye for an eye and everyone shall be blind
There is a couple of ways to exclude the delete commands to be replicated to the subscribers. You can specify what action should be taken for the delete/insert/update command, specify NONE and no action will be taken. You can also specify that a custom stored procedure should be used for the delete command. More info:
