I want to change a database column in SSMS and get the following error message:

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

In order to make changes to a table, you have to change an option in SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS).

  1. In SSMS, in the main windows menu, choose Tools → Options… → Designers.
  2. Uncheck the option ”Prevent saving changes that require table re-creation
