SQL 2008: Modify Design in a Table is not permitted

When attempting to modify a table design (by right clicking on the table and select ‘design’) you get and error something along the lines of:

 

Saving change is not permitted. the changes you have made require the following tables to be dropped and re-created. You have either made changes to a table that cant be re-created or enabled the option Prevent Saving changes that require the table to be re-created.

You can fix this quite easily by the following method

Tools Menu > Options > Designers > Untick ‘Prevent saving changes that require a table re-creation’
