How do make a local replica which has no documents?

This is used if a user only wants to compose new documents on the local replica, but the user does not want to replicate a copy of the entire database locally.

Enter a selective replication formula which is never true:

1) Create a new replica and select initialize at first replication
2) Go to your new stub and enter the following selective replication formula:

 SELECT @False

(This will only work if you absolutly don't need anything from the original database, if you need some documents to perform lookups against, than you should only select those documents)
3) Replicate the stub, select receive from server only.
4) Clear the selective replication formula in the local database.
