Resolving the warning 'Saving changes is not permitted' in SQL Server 2008

For those new to SQL Server 2008, when you perform operations like Adding/Dropping a column or changing the data type of the column in the Management Studio, a warning pops up:

"Saving changes is not permitted. The changes you have made require the following tables to be dropped and re-created. You have either made changes to a table that can't be re-created or enabled the option Prevent saving changes that require the table to be re-created."

Solution:

In order to prevent this warning from occuring, Go to Tools > Options > Designers > Table and Database Designers > Uncheck the checkbox 'Prevent saving changes that require the table to be re-created check box'


Now you will be able to make changes to the tables.


If it helped you...please drop ur comments
