... after I add a column to a table. I've just started using 2008 R2 Management Studio, but I have a few years experience with 2005 Management Studio. Also, I am connecting to a 2005 instance of a database on a remote server.
- right-click on a column and select "Modify"
- supply new column name and datatype
- click "X"
- click "Yes" to save
- have to right-click -> "Refresh" on table, and then the new column shows up, but the hourglass never goes away! (see image below)
Why is this happening?
Running Win7 32-bit/Management Studio 2008 R2 32-bit. There could be other glitches too, I haven't used it enough yet.
