Hi experts,

Does anyone know how to turn on intellisense in SQL 2014?  

I went to Tools > Options > Transact-SQL > Intellisense but "Enable Itellisense" was already checked.  

Thanks in Advance,
jr

Try hitting Ctrl-Shift-R to refresh the cache (used to work in earlier versions).

Are you sure the compatibility level of the database is set to >=100 ?

I tried kaufmed's Ctrl-Shift-R -- no luck

Re acperkins:  Not sure what that means. . . ?

Also, FYI, I decided to install 2012 Mgmt Studio instead -- more help is available.  However, even in 2012, although the setup screen has Enable Itellisense checked, it doesn't work.  Also, from inside the Query, the Query menu's "Enable Intellisense " is greyed out, altho it does appear to be selected (picture attached).

Thanks,
jr

kaufmed -- I am hitting a SQL 2005 database on another server -- i checked the dB properties and you're right -- the compatibility level is only 90.  There were other options, but all lower than 90.  I assume I'm going to have to upgrade that SQL server, or find another sandbox to play in.

Thanks all.  Especially kaufmed :)

That really depends.  If the server is SQL Server 2008 or higher all you have to do is change the compatibility level on the database.
