Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2008 R2 fix release.
Consider the following scenario:
You use Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 2008 R2 (SSMS 2008 R2) to connect to SQL Azure.
You click a command on the shortcut menu for an object of a SQL Azure database to generate a script in Object Explorer.
In this scenario, the script is not generated.
For example, the Script Table as and CREATE To commands do not generate a script to create the table when you right-click a table in the SQL Azure database.
This issue occurs because an SQL Azure database supports only a very limited set of SQL Server Management Objects (SMO).
