How to: Save Your Work in Table Designer (Visual Database Tools)

You can save changes to tables that are open in Table Designer.

  1. Click anywhere in the Table Designer.

  2. From the File menu, choose Save tablename.

  3. In the Save dialog box, click Yes to update the database.

If the changes you are saving cause no changes to other tables, you won't see this dialog.

The list of tables in the Save dialog box may include tables other than the one you modified. For example, if you change the data type of a column that participates in a relationship with another table, both tables will be included in this list.

To save changes to all open items, such as tables, views, stored procedures, from the File menu choose Save All.
