  • HI,

    According to : Could not retrieve schema information for database object <object name>

    It said that "Because the database object no longer exists, this message appears."

    To correct this error you should Click OK to dismiss the dialog box.

    I recommand you delete the project and create a new project.

    Here hava a same question, you can try to repair the Visual Database Tools dsref80.dll

    Drag and Drop From Server Explorer to DataSet and DBML Designer NOT Working

    I also recommand you install the newest version of Visual Studio, this maybe help you solve issue.

    Best Regards,
