I have been using SSMS (SQL Server Management Studio) 2016 build number 13.0.15900.1 and noticed that if you wanted to manage compression you couldn’t as it is greyed out.
Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 13.0.15900.1
The actual message that you are presented states: Tables with sparse columns cannot be compressed – I have no sparse columns.
I never had this issue with SQL Server 2014 Management Studio:
Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 12.0.4100.1
The next release of SSMS is now available build number 13.0.16000.28 – see link https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt238290.aspx
I am happy because it addresses this issue, item number 4 from the above link states: Fixed the issue that “Manage Compression” menu item is disabled for the user table nodes in object explorer tree.
