I have a "Product" table in which I want to create a new columns "Modified_By" and "Modified_Date_Time". This columns does not allow nulls.
However, as the database already has data, in order to create this column I had to defined as "allowing nulls". Then, I run a process which updated the new column. The last step was to uncheck the "Allow nulls" property, but when I tried to save the table changes, I got the following error:
'Product_Details' table - Unable to modify table.
Cannot insert the value NULL into column 'Modified_Date_Time', table 'Vendor Products.dbo.Tmp_Product_Details'; column does not allow nulls. INSERT fails. The statement has been terminated.
All the rows were succesfully updated with the correct value in the "Modified_By" and "Modified_Date_Time" column, so I don't know why I get this error...Anyway, it seems like a new "temporary" table was created by SQL Server 2008, because I don't have any table with the name "Tmp_Orders"
Any help is appreciated..Thanks
