It looked mine was turned on according to what was in the article but it is still not working
Intellisense will only work work attaching using SQL Server 2008 (or later) tools to a SQL Server 2008 (or later) instance.  You cannot use intellisense against a 2005 instance.  If you need that, I suggest SQL prompt from Red-Gate.

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 (RTM) - 10.50.1600.1 (X64)   Apr  2 2010 15:48:46   Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation  Enterprise Edition (64-bit) on Windows NT 6.1 <X64> (Build 7600: ) (Hypervisor)
Cool.  And what permission level do you have in the database which you are trying to get intellisense to work?
Have you checked out the solution here http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sqltools/thread/446aebe8-7889-453b-80f3-7dd3579bd19f/

1) Make sure you are connected to SQL Server 2008 Edition.
IntelliSense does not work with the previous versions of SQL Server.

2) IntelliSense should be enabled.
Go to Tools >> Options >> Text Editor >> Transact-SQL >> IntelliSense

3) IntelliSense should be refreshed with the latest changes in database.
a) Press CTRL+SHIFT+R
b) Go to Edit >> IntelliSense >> Refresh Local Cache

4) Go to Tools >> Options >> Text Editor >> Transact-SQL >> General >> IntelliSense
Select Auto List Members and Check Parameter Information.

Yes, I tried that.
So what are your permissions in the database then?

Any luck yet?

I found this thread in the MSDN Forums:

Maybe that will help.
