When I am typing the name of a field or table in the query window in SQL Server 2008 it does not automatically prompt me with a list of possible objects with that name for easy selection.

Does anyone know how to turn this feature on?

Also please note that intellisense will only work if you are in SQL 2008 with a 2008 database. It won't work with a 2005 one.
