This backend version is not supported to design database diagrams or tables. (MS Visual Database Tools)

This morning one of our developers contacted me regarding this error message he got when he tried to design a table from his SSMS.

Also, he reported that his SSMS goes to “Not Responding” state when he tries to edit rows using his SSMS. So…What’s happening?

He was trying to edit a table within a database which is running on SQL Server 2014 version using his SSMS 2012.  Now, all he needs is upgrading his client tools to 2014. Remember, you can manage/manipulate older versions of your SQL Servers using your 2014 SSMS, However be prepared to face these annoying issues if you are trying the other way.

Happy weekend folks!
