Cannot change data types in SQL Server 2008

I need to change a column from Real to Money, but when I try to do so I get the message:-

Saving changes is not permitted. The changes you have made require the followilg tables to be dropped and re-created. You have either made changes to a table that can't be recreated or enables the option Prevent Saving Changes that require the table to be re-created

try this instead (through tsql)

alter table tablename
alter column yourcolumnname MONEY
