SYMPTOMS

When you try to use a merge publication that you created in Microsoft SQL Server 2005, you may receive one of the following error messages:
Error message 1
Precomputed partitions cannot be used because articles "%s" and "%s" are part of a join filter and at least one of them has a constraint with a CASCADE action defined.
Error message 2
The logical record relationship between articles "%s" and "%s" cannot be added because at least one of the articles has a constraint with a CASCADE action defined.
This problem occurs when the following conditions are true:
  • The Precompute partitions setting of the merge publication is set to True.
  • The merge publication contains an article that is based on a table that is specified to use cascading referential integrity constraints.
  • The merge publication contains join filters for the article.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because precomputed partitions cannot be used for a table that is specified to use cascading referential integrity constraints.
