When trying from EM to execute sp_helparticle or sp_droparticle, the result is :
'syspublications : invalid object name.'
I have no syspublications table
I ran a script to generate it, but is still empty.
How can I make those script run ?
I have a dedicaded W2K3 server with SQL2000 and from replication (merge) a W2K with MSDE (all latest sp applied).
Any help appreciated

What SP version are you running?

There are documented instances of the latest SP not being applied correctly, resulting in missing stored procedures (e.g. sp_MSestimatesnapshotworkload). To identify missing procedures you can run SQL Profiler and see what the process is trying to execute.

Alternatively, re-apply the latest service pack, and all subsequent hotfixes.

I have already re-applied the sp4 on sql2k, but I found what was wrong, the sp_helpmergearticle is to be used since it's a merge publication. all the procedures to be used are sp_???mergearticle.
Have a good day.
