Suppose you have an existing table and article for transational replication, and vertical partitioning is enabled. There is a need to add a new column to the existing table, but the column does not need to be replicated.
a) It seems that SQL Server will replicate the column by default, even if vertical partitioning is enabled. Is that true?
b) If so, is that behavior something that can be changed, so that new columns are not replicated automatically?
