Sql-server – SQL Replication “Row Not Found” Error

replicationsql server

I have transactional replication running between two databases. I fear they have fallen slightly out of sync, but I don't know which records are affected. If I knew, I could fix it manually on the subscriber side.

SQL Server is giving me this message:

The row was not found at the Subscriber when applying the replicated command. (Source: MSSQLServer, Error number: 20598)

I've looked around to try to find out what table, or even better what record is causing the issue, but I can't find that information anywhere.

The most detailed data I've found so far is:

Transaction sequence number: 0x0003BB0E000001DF000600000000, Command ID: 1

But how do I find the table and row from that? Any ideas?

This gives you the table the error is against

use distribution
go

select * from dbo.MSarticles
where article_id in (
    select article_id from MSrepl_commands
    where xact_seqno = 0x0003BB0E000001DF000600000000)

And this will give you the command (and the primary key (ie the row) the command was executing against)

exec sp_browsereplcmds 
@xact_seqno_start = '0x0003BB0E000001DF000600000000', 
@xact_seqno_end = '0x0003BB0E000001DF000600000000'
