I want some way of doing replication in which only inserted and updated data gets replicated not the deleted one.

The idea is to build archiving database from the live db. but we want live db to be small.

1- Move changed data from live db to archive db
2- delete data from live db of older than today

we have to implement this in sql server. any other solution than replication.

Your best option is to use triggers added to your tables.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms189799.aspx

also

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/cc164047.aspx

After each 'Insert/Update' trigger you coudl write to another table in another database (if required) based on the values that were changed from the current row (that the trigger provides to you)  and then flush transactions from the bottom of your current table as required (or overnight using an SQL Agent Scheduled Task stored procedure).

The topic of triggers is too complicated to go into here - you will just need to go and read up about it but be warned you will almost certainly need to learn about stored procedures too (if you are not already familiar with them) as without them things get very complicated quite quickly.

Is there any way we can achieve the same using replication? I know the trigger option but wanted to do somehow using replication.

Well, your original question ends..

"have to implement this in sql server. any other solution than replication."

Other than replication and using triggers, what else is there? clr doesn't supply any option that tsql doesn't already provide either.

I understand what you are trying to achieve I have done similar things too - using triggers, you could probably do something using a bunch of half baked client side code but it won't work (as well)

Have fun with this.
