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.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

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.

So what are your permissions in the database then?

Any luck yet?

I found this thread in the MSDN Forums:
http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/sqltools/thread/dcd5c2cb-fc53-4c28-8b09-bfd9fea6684e

Maybe that will help.
