When I right click on my table and select 'Script table as' the 'Alter' option is greyed out.

When I right click on my table and select 'Script table as' the 'Alter' option is greyed out.

Why might that be.

here is the ddl of the table.

create TABLE [Audit].[Executed_Reports](
      [Exec_ID] [int] IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL,
      [Report_Name] [varchar](500) NULL,
      [Date] [datetime] NULL,
PRIMARY KEY CLUSTERED
(
      [Exec_ID] ASC
)WITH (PAD_INDEX  = OFF, STATISTICS_NORECOMPUTE  = OFF, IGNORE_DUP_KEY = OFF, ALLOW_ROW_LOCKS  = ON, ALLOW_PAGE_LOCKS  = ON) ON [PRIMARY]
) ON [PRIMARY]

I normally alter a table one object at a time. I don't believe there is a global Alter option for a table (at least in the version of SQL Server I'm using, just create and drop.  Alter scripts need to be handled individually at the Column, constraint, table property level.

This is a normal behavior and Alter To /Execute To is not applicable to Table... it is only applicable to objects like sp/function/views
