The purpose of this document is to provide several SQL scripts to allow the 
Stream  Database Administrator (usually the STRMADMIN user) to verify
structural differences between a replicated table object on the SOURCE
and that of its corresponding table object within the replication environment
at any other DESTINATION.


The reasoning behind the scripts being read-only anonymous SQL is due to the  fact that these will be used on production databases and if this was in the  form of a package then some customers have to go through rigorous change control and testing before ANY addition / change to the live set-up can be implemented. This is not what we want for this as they are problem solving scripts and need to be used on an adhoc basis.

To run these scripts ,the names of the replicated table object and  the Global Name of the remote database should  be known. The  global name will always be the database link required to access the Destination  from  the source  due to the need within replication of having the GLOBAL_NAMES parameter  set to TRUE.

Each script should be run locally on the SOURCE. If a hard copy is required then  the Set OUTPUT option should be used.
