See Object Explorer Details for objects in this folder
MSSQL Server Management Studio, See object explorer details for objects in this folder
Several days ago, I was trying to connect to
Microsoft SQL Server 2008 on my hosting account. It connects
successfully but I don't see any database when expanding the
Databases folder. There is an unusual blue icon under the folder with
the label "See Object Explorer Details for objects in this folder".
Then I compared the build version of Microsoft SQL Management Studio
on my machine and the SQL server 2008 version on the hosting account
and I noticed that the version I have is not up-to-date. Everything are
working correctly again after installing all the necessary service
pack and critical update. If you come across this situation, first
check the version of SQL Management Studio. Here
is the step to check the versions. Then download/install the latest
service pack or update from Microsoft website or run the windows
update. I also found this link useful, it provides all the KB / Descriptions for all build.
