Invalid Object Name – Management Studio Doesn’t Recognize new object

Today I’ve created a new table using SQL Server Management studio 2008, it creates successfully.

When I try to write a Query using this table, Management studio underlined the table name as Invalid object Name
I checked in the list of tables thru intelliSense feature, it does not recognize the table.
But lists on the object Explorer table’s lists after refresh.

After gone thru SQL Documentation, i came to know, this problem can be solved by Refreshing the IntelliSense Cache.

Following is the way to Refresh the IntelliSense Cache
Edit -> IntelliSense -> Refresh Local Cache
Now i checked the intelliSense lists, it lists the table.

Hope it helps!

you must install the following IIS components:

IIS 6 Metabase and IIS 6 Configuration Compatibility
ASP.NET

After Installed IIS, We tried many times to publish the Web service, but still we faced the same issue, finally we come to know, My friend doesn't have proper priviledge to deploy to IIS. If you want publish on IIS, you should have admin rights.

So We run Visual studio thru "Run as administrator", then we tried to deploy the Web service.
