I had a push subscription on server A that moved a table to server B.  I deleted the push subscription on A and it deleted but it failed delete the information off of server B. If I try to delete the table on server B it says it cannot delete it because it's being used for replication.  I am no longer using replication on it, how can I delete this table?

Are you sure that you deleted the subscription on both sides?

I have deleted the push subscription on server a. I can see the subscription still on the server b machine but there is no option do delete it. (Or do anything else for that matter)

It's for SQL Server 2000.

I ended up dropping the publication alltogether on the publisher then the subscriber allowed me to delete the table.

You can run sp_addarticle and sp_droparticle on the replicated item involved without having to drop the entire publication.

When a table is subscribed to replication a number of processes are not possible.

check out:
replinfo int Reserved. For use by replication.
in the sysobjects table.

If the replinfo > 0 then this object is being used within replication.
