sir i have created one table (degree master) as below in sql server 2008

degreeid  int(identity) PK
degree name varchar(50)

i have few records of data in this table and this table has relationship with two more table (program master and faculty master).

now i want to add a new field to this degree master table after degreeid field.

i.e.
degreeid int(identity)PK
degreetype varchar(50)
degreename varchar(50).

after adding this field when i try to save this table it gives me error and suggest to drop and re-create table again. I also tried it after removing relationship with other two table but still it gives me the same error and suggest me to drop and create table again  which i dont want to do.

Is there any other ways to do so.

thanks
ronak

If you are inserting a column, as opposed to just adding it to the end, then you have no choice but to drop and recreate the table.  This is typically handled automatically after a warning prompt from SSMS.  However, there is a default setting that will prevent this action from occurring.  To enable the change...

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