Field is invalid


#1

Hi There,

I am trying to add a date field to my table but when I right-click, select all records I get a red squiggly line under the field name and when I hover over it I get the message invalid column name 'MyField' the select query returns the records from the table including the MyField Column.

There are a couple of views that use the same table for a couple of select statements.
Would anyone know why I am getting the invalid field message?

Thanks for the help.

Best Regards,

Edit>IntelliSence>Refresh Local Cache
or
Ctrl+Shift+R
Refreshes IntelliSence metadata cache in SSMS making the red squiggly go away.
