I'm wondering why I cannot see a table columns in SQL Server management studio.

Let's say dbo.table1, when I expend the + sign baside the table name, Keys, Constraints, Triggers, Index and Statistics items are listed under table name level.
But there's no + sign for the Columns item, and there are + sign for Keys, Constraints, Triggers, Index and Statistics items. So I can see expended tree of those items except the Column item.

When I execute
select * from dbo.table1,
I can see table titles but no row is selected.

Why I cannot see any column of this table while I can see cloumns of any other column under same schema, like dbo.allothertables?

What would be the reason to cause this?

Thanks.

Hi

Deny permission trumps grant. It maybe that there is a specific block on that. That permission may need to be revoked.

I'm not sure if its doable, but how likely is it that that table has no columns?

The other reason is the possibility that there are so many columns that Object Explorer cant or wont list them. They can be seen in the Object Details window though.
