COMPUTERS How to Disable “Saving changes is not permitted” dialog box (SQL Server 2008)

To turn off the “Saving changes not permitted” dialog box, so that you don’t have to recreate a table in order to save changes to the table, follow these SQL Server 2008 configuration instructions:

  1. Open SQL Server Management Studio.
  2. On the menu choose Tools -> click Options
  3. In the Options pop-up box, expand Designers, and then click Table and Database Designers.
  4. Uncheck the option “Prevent saving changes that require the table to be re-created” check box.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Now when you go to save changes to a Table, you will be permitted to do so.

Truncate / Purge SQL 2005 database log files

There are 2-3 methods but the method which I used is as follows:

1) Detach the database from the SQL Server Management Studio.

2) Go to the location of transaction log and rename it (don’t delete the file yet!!)

3) Attach the database without the log file. When you do this step make sure you highlight the log file entry in the wizard and remove it. (Final attach would happen only with one file i.e. with the MDF file).

At this point there would be a new log file created by the SQL Server.

4) Delete the log file once the database is attached and you have verified it.

MySQL-Front, a good client for managing MySQL Server for Windows

MySQL-Front version 5.1

Data Browser Screenshot of MySQL-Front shows an easy to use GUI implementation of a MySQL Table viewing and editingMySQL-Front is a graphical GUI for the MySQL database. Because it is a “real” application, it can offer a more refined user-interface than is possible with systems built on PHP and HTML. Response is immediate, as there is no delay of reloading HTML-pages.

As a Windows GUI application, it has total control of the graphic display, information can be presented as clearly as possible. Your data is presented in a table with resizable column-widths and sorting capability.

If your provider allows it, MySQL-Front can make direct contact with the database. Otherwise, only one small script needs to be installed on the publishing website. Login information (and passwords if wanted) are stored on your hard disk, so you no longer have to log on to different web interfaces.

MySQL-Front presents a uniform front-end for all of your current database projects. In practice, you can work with the database of your choice after only a few clicks.
