Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 2008 does not list all tables in database

When logging into SSMS 2008 to a SQL2008 database when I expand the tables in a database I only see a few tables listed.  I can login to the same instance with SSMS 2005 and all of the tables are there.  Is there a reason why this is this way?

I can do a select * from in a query window for any of the tables in the database via SSMS 2008 as well and it work fine.  It just does not display the tables.

Cannot create database diagrams for sqlexpress .mdf file in Visual studio server explorer



I've look around the forums but I can't get the solution for my problem. I've installed Visual studio 2010 with sqlexpress edition. Then I have renamed my computer. After renaming my computer I've deleted the directory C:\Users\uporabnik\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Data\SQLEXPRESS. After restart, I have started VS2010, open Server explorer and I've added the connection to a new database. I've been able to add new tabels, bu when I've tried to add a diagram, it didn't work. In properties window od the database I saw, the the database owner was oldComputerName\username not newComputerName\userName. In sql server management studio I've reanmed the user oldComputerName\userName to newComputerName\userName. After attaching the database it worked fine.

I've returned to Visual studio 2010. When creating new database, the owner of new database is oldComputerName\userName. The next tip was renaming the  SQLServerMSSQLUser$ComputerName$SQLEXPRESS(and other names with sql...) in Local Users and gorups in Mange My computer. After restarting the compter I've got the same result. When creating new .mdf file in server explorer of visual studio, the database owner is oldComputerName\userName.<

SQL Server 2008 Management Studio

Been around SQL Server since 7.0 days.   In SQL Server 2008 Management Studio I don't seem to be able to display Created Date for Views. I can't really believe MS have taken this away so hence my Q.   I find it useful to see Created Data to script my recently developed View and other objects.   Robert, Edinburgh    Bob as MCSD.NET 2003

SQL Server Management Studio is not attaching a database.

Hi folks,I'm a newbie in development, and i'm facing a grave concern here.  Sql Server Management Studio (2008) does not seem to be able to attach  a database that i've already created in Sql Server 2005 express within my ASP.NET application.  When I try to attach the database, by clicking "Attach" after right clicking the Database note in object explorer, I get to see a dialog box with an Add button.  I then click that button, and try to navigate to the database, and I'm simply not able to reach that folder!!! The folder containing the databse physically exists, but i can't see it when i'm trying to browse to it.This is a Windows 7 (home edition) laptop, with VS 2008.Can someone please help me here???Thanks!

SQL server management studio 2008 freezes when running a query to Grid result

Hello, I've got problems when I run a Query to a grid result using SQL server management studio 2008 under W7 pro. When I execute the query, the first part of the grid returns, but then it freezes. The query should present a double resultset and contains approx 6100 records, devided over 2 grids. Strange enough, the query runs fine when I export to TXT or to a file. It seems though that the problem is building the grid. When it occurs I cannot end the application bij shutting down de SSMS window, but have to kill the Ssms.exe. In task manager I see only 25% CPU usage and approx 20% memory usage. Nothing exiting there I guess. Suggestions anybody?

Getting Sql Server Management Studio 2008 installed on local computer

Hello, I have been trying to figure out this problem for a while now so hopefully someone can help me out - I would really appreciate it! Right now I have SQl Server Management Studio2005 installed on my computer for a SQL sever that we have. We recently got a 2008 sql server and if I remotely access the server, I can see that SQL Management Studio 2008 has been isntalled on the new server. I need to build new databases but need SQL Management Studio 2008 on my computer and I have no idea how to get it. I have a "Microsoft SQl Server 2008 R2" folder on my computer, and I have already tried clicking on "Configuration Tools" and then "SQL Server Installation center" and it isntalls a bunch of things, but none of them are "SQL Server Management Studio 2008."  I also found a link on a Microsoft website that says it's SQL Server Management studio 2008 R2 but it was just the same bunch of programs I already downloaded. How do I install Sql Server Managment Studio 2008 on my computer?! Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

SQL Server Management Studio cannot locate my database

I had to uninstall SQL Server 08 when I left my last project, I have reinstalled the management studio but it no longer recognizes the databases that are on my local machine.  How can I reconcile the connection to the preexisting databases?  When I choose connect, nothing comes up in the options and when i type in the database name it errors out.  I thought it was just that the old files were corrupt but I installed a brand new database and while i can verify that it exists on my machine, I cannot connect through Management Studio.
