How to disable "prevent saving changes" option:
If you are currently using MS SQL Server 2008 Management Studio, you may receive the following error when attempting to make changes to a database table.
"Saving changes in not permitted. The changes you have made require the following tables to be dropped and recreated, 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."
NOTE: This option (prevent saving changes) is enabled by default.
To disable this option:
Click Tools >> Options >> Designers >> Table and Database Designers >> Uncheck "Prevent saving changes that require table recreation"
Once this has been disabled you will be able to make tables changes as anticipated.
