While creating and editing a database in SQL server 2008 I soon ran into a brick wall, or a 'by design' feature of the Database Management Studio.
When you design a table in a database and then try to make a change to a table structure that requires the table to be recreated, the Database Management Studio will not allow you to save the changes.
This is caused by a configuration setting that default results in the following dialog:

Error dialog

This dialog states: "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 only react clicking the Cancel button.
And than Management Studio shows this dialog:

 

So what you want to do to configure the setting with the value you want (IMHO should be the default setting!).
Go to: Tools > Options

Tools menu choose Options

Select the tab Designers and choose Tables and designers

And uncheck the option: "Prevent saving changes that require table re-creation".
Once you now save changes it will work.

The dumb part is they let you make editing changes you can't apply. Why not a dialog in the beginning ("This table can't be changed because..."). Idiotic. What's the purpose of a visual tool then?

david, they did it on purpose i think : better for a db admin to know what he's doing before unchecking this box.

VERY helpful exactly our thoughts haha like ur quote and the long face.
any idea how to set the primary key as the bindingkeynavigatoritem number i actually imported the data from excel.

19/03/2009 16:47:35 #

Good to hear.

Could you specify your problem? I want to help, but i am not sure what you need.
If all you want is to set the primary key:

In SQL Server Management Studio expand the folder Tables and reight clcik on the Table you want to modify.
Click on 'Design'
Select the colunm you want to make primary key
In the toolbar Click on the key icon to make the column primary key

If you need to autonumber also, you have to expand the Identity Specification node in the Column Properties and double click on 'Is Identity'.

hope this helps, if you want something else let me know, maybe I can help.

Well the date of that KB article is March 2009... this is a major problem.  The whole point of a visual design tool is to use it visually... "use T-SQL instead" is not an appropriate response from Microsoft.  The weird thing is it just started happening to me very recently.  I was able to use the tool fine before.

05/09/2009 22:53:30 #

That's strange, and I agree, it is no solution to use T-SQL.
Good luck

Hi Chris,
I agree on a production machine you need to be carefull with these things.
That said on a production or test environment, I think it's not an issue.

All the comments on this post tell me Microsoft needs to communicate this kind of changes better.

Thanks anyway for your caveat.

1. MSFT absolutely made the right defaulting choice here. SSMS should make it hard for a person to perform potentially destructive actions without knowing exactly what they're doing.
2. To every commenter that simply said "Thanks! This helped me!": You're making it really hard to work out if something useful was said in the comments.

I've read similar posts on a dozen different websites, but none are addressing the most important concern.

I need to add a column to a table contain a few million rows.  After testing this solution on a test database, I find that it only takes about 30 seconds to complete; not a big deal.

So is this safe to do on a production table after hours?

Is there any risk of losing data of any kind (table data, constraints, stats, indexes)?

I guess I don't understand why MS locks you out in the first place.   Is it solely because of the potential of hanging a production database for a long period of time (because its such an extensive operation)?

Thanks for any insight!

To all you people:
There's a help button on the title bar of this dialog, it can be clicked actually!

I came across here to see why does this pop up, not to find a way to turn it off.

It should be mentioned that there IS a downside to this.  Microsoft has its reasons for having this behaviour.

You can learn more about the risks of enabling this feature here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/956176

Turning it off is safe for most, but I think it should at least be mentioned that there is a possibility of losing data.

Nonetheless, it's safe enough for me, so THANKS for encouraging me to do it :-P
