I have 2 Different server using SQL Server 2005 with SP2 in the same domain using LAN.

I establish Merge Replication between the 2 servers on one table "MMS_PO".

Note: MMS_PO table have many child tables with a foreign Keys.

At point of initialization, I got the following Error Message:
"
Error messages:
The schema script 'MMS_PO_2.sch' could not be propagated to the subscriber. (Source: MSSQL_REPL, Error number: MSSQL_REPL-2147201001)
Get help: http://help/MSSQL_REPL-2147201001
Could not drop object 'dbo.MMS_PO' because it is referenced by a FOREIGN KEY constraint. (Source: MSSQLServer, Error number: 3726)
Get help: http://help/3726
"

So I went to Publication properties, and I changed the Article properties in the Publication to be "Keep existing object unchanged"
Then I run the snapshot agent and mark the sunscriber for reinitialize.

I got another error :

"
Command attempted:
{call sp_MSsetconflicttable (N'EMP', N'MSmerge_conflict_REP_ABC_TEST_EMP', N'W-TIP-0302', N'ABC', N'REP_ABC_TEST')}

I succeeded to initialize to a new database, and every thing is OK.
Also I reinitialize many times after adding some data and every thing is OK.

So I thing the problem in dropping and creation of the database structure (actually in the Drop process).

I try to add Pre-Snapshot script to drop ALL Foreign Keys, but I got another error:
"
Error messages:
The schema script 'drop_FK_0.sql' could not be propagated to the subscriber. (Source: MSSQL_REPL, Error number: MSSQL_REPL-2147201001)
Get help: http://help/MSSQL_REPL-2147201001

I concentrate on the First error I face :
"
Error messages:
The schema script 'MMS_PO_2.sch' could not be propagated to the subscriber. (Source: MSSQL_REPL, Error number: MSSQL_REPL-2147201001)
Get help: http://help/MSSQL_REPL-2147201001
Could not drop object 'dbo.MMS_PO' because it is referenced by a FOREIGN KEY constraint. (Source: MSSQLServer, Error number: 3726)
Get help: http://help/3726
"

So I generate a script to drop all foreign keys using "sp_fkys" then I generate another script to create it again.

So after I drop all the FK in the subscriber database, I succeeded to Initialize the subscriber and deliver the snapshot.

Finally I create all the FK's again and every thing is fine. :))
