After creating new tables in MSSQL 2008, the intellisense list never displays updated tables or table names and columns. (Am using server management studio when this happens).

Does anyone know how to refresh this information in sql 2008 without closing the SQL server management studio 2008 and logging back in.


In management studio, go to Edit Menu -> Intellisense -> RefreshLocalCache, click on this and it will reload the cached copy of the schema and update the intellisense.

  Key commands - CTRL+SHIFT+R
