It is a common problem for all of us who are using SQL Server; always problem with the version. I am using SQL server 2005 and my another colleague in different location using 2008 and same problem happening to me as well then I told him to do Generate script database and this problem has been resolved.

Please follow these below step to resolved the problem:

object explorer-DB_Accounting_System Script Wizard-Select Database Choose Script Options Output Option Generate Script Progress
