SQL 2008 Enable Changes To Tables

By | Database, MSSQL2008, SQL Server, TSQL | 13 Comments

If you get the error in the SQL 2008 Management Studio :

“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.”

You can enable changes inside the¬†Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio by going to ‘Tools|Options|Designers’ then unchecking the ‘Prevent saving changes that require table re-creation’ option
