Alternative way using Microsoft SQL Management Studio (If it is available)

1. Open Microsoft SQL Management Studio
2. Login with your valid credentials
3. Expand 'Databases'
4. Expand '<YourDatabase>'
5. Expand 'Tables'
6. Right-Click on the table you want to modify
7. Select 'Modify' from the Right-Click menu
8. Here you can see the table design in editable mode. Click on the datatype and select int instead of bit
