Unable to view column data types in SSMS

Last Modified: 2015-07-09
Currently users are unable to see the data types of columns which they have data reader rights to for a particular database. This database is replicated (if this has anything to do with it) and multiple users are experiencing the same issues. I have sysadmin and see it without any issues. We are using SQL server 2012 Enterprise.
