Remove Replication

Replication makes many changes to the database structure of your model, so the model file becomes considerably larger with additional information; you might, therefore, decide not to use the replication feature any more.

Access:   Tools | Data Management | Manage .EAP File | Remove Replication

Use to:

  • Remove replication from your model

How to:

To  remove replication from your model, follow the steps below:
