IntelliSense Not Working in Management Studio

IntelliSense not working in your management studio? Here are a few settings to check.

1)Make sure that IntelliSense is enabled for Management Studio under:

Tools > Options > Text Editor > Transact-SQL > IntelliSense

2)Make sure that IntelliSense is enabled for the current query window by checking:

Query > IntelliSense Enabled menu option (it should be enabled)

3)IntelliSense does not work in SQLCMD mode, ensure that you haven’t enabled this by checking:

Query > SQLCMD Mode menu option (it should NOT be enabled):

4)Check that your script isn’t too large. To prevent performance issues, SSMS will not try to parse a script that is larger than the size set in:

Tools > Options > Text Editor > Transact-SQL > IntelliSense > Maximum script size.

You can adjust this setting if you are working with very large files, or consider breaking them up into smaller scripts
