Saving change is not permitted

Saving change is not permitted

Some time if your setting changed by some one then you can not update table in MSSQL 2008.
you will see the below error:

“A table that can not be re-created or enabled the options prevent saving changes.
Sql 2008 Management Tools: Can’t save changes that require Recreation of Database”

That time you need to update your setting.

The fix is:

Go to Tools => Options => Designers =>Tables and Designers and uncheck the Prevent Saving Changes that require table re-creation option:

As it is, reverting back to the ‘old’ behavior now doesn’t let you know that a table recreate is required either, so the behavior now is the same as was with the old tools. Here Microsoft added some useful functionality and then UI fails to expose it intelligently.
