Go into SQL server security settings and make sure your login has 'dbo' access to the database, or that your login is tagged as a sys admin.

1) This is an attached database. This database will used locally for all our client machines.

2) I am not able to find Username ( i.e sa ), under Login.

I have attached the screen shot of this issue.

Do you have the S.A password? As I suspect the tables are locked by that
