VS.NET 2003, Visual Database Tools, Oracle 8i

  1. In July 2003, there was a post by Srinivas Kanakapally [MSFT]:

    I actually started having this error when a database was upgraded to
    9i, but after upgrading to VS 2003, I am now unable to update
    anything, quite in line with this message.

    What do I do about it? I have been using VS as a tool to create
    tables, make changes, and when the change is problematic, script the
    change. I can now do none of these things. What is the Microsoft
    suggestion for this loss of functionality? I know I can use Visio for
    some of this; has it been upgraded to handle non-destructive table
    changes?

    Thanks for any insight.
