Colleagues of mine have taken a detached SQL Server 2005 database and attached it to SQL Server 2008 (R2?) server. Although they can run select statements against the tables they know are in the database, no tables are listed in the Management Studio tables treeview. Has anyone any idea how this could have happened?

you need to give "view definition" permissions to user:


GRANT VIEW DEFINITION TO <user>

GRANT VIEW SERVER STATE TO <user>
