Go to Tools > Options > Designers > Uncheck "Prevent saving changes that require table re-creation"

This problem occurs when the Prevent saving changes that require the table re-creation option is enabled, and you make one or more of the following changes to the table:

    * You change the Allow Nulls setting for a column.
    * You reorder columns in the table.
    * You change the column data type.
    * You add a new column.
