Hello Experts,

I am having issues with a replicated database. the subscriber cannot insert any values, they can edit values but not insert.

Environment

Server: Windows Server 2012, Hyper-v, 32gb Ram, 2x 2.6ghz Xeon quad core processors
SQL Server:  Microsoft SQL Server Standard 2012, Installed on Windows Server 2012 Standard (VPS)  with 6Gb Ram 2x 2.6 CPU cores
Client Machine (subscriber): SQL Server Express 2012, Windows 7 Pro, 8 GB RAM, i7 processor.

Summary of issue

The client machine can synchronise the subscription with the publisher and can communicate with no errors. (there are no authentication issues).

Updates propagate as expected to the publisher and to other subscribers.

Users (subscribers) cannot insert new records.

any assistance in solving the problem of not being able to insert records will be most appreciated.

Kind Regards

Trent

What error occurs when you try to insert new records on the subscribers?

OK so in what way does it prevent you from inserting records?

ok it seems that the software I am using with the database has a cooky was of inserting values. It seems to insert all null values first then triggers a trigger to insert the values. I have contacted the software manufacturer to no avail, and it seems that the forum have mentioned that the behaviour is a known bug.
