Activating replication for an empty Adabas file will not lead to the creation of an empty SQL Server table. Only when the first record is put into the Adabas file, the SQL table will be created (and a row inserted).
This doesn't sound right, don't you think? Shouldn't an empty replicated Adabas file result in an empty SQL table? I mean, the case might be rare, but there's a difference between 'table not found' and '0 rows found'!
