Hi All,

I try to use database diagrams.
When I choose menu "New Database Diagram", I get error :

This database does not have one or more of the support object required to use database diagramming.
Do you wish to create them ?

I get error "Invalid column uvalue"

What's wrong ?

Thank you.

Did you apply all  the service packs ?
also can you get the values of this query

SELECT collation_name FROM sys.databases WHERE name = ' Your database name ';

Hi  aneeshattingal,

SELECT collation_name FROM sys.databases WHERE name = ' Your database name ';

I get one row : SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS

Thank you.

As far as I am aware this was a bug when they released SQL 2005. Was fixed with the service packs
