TITLE: Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio
syntax error ( *EngineEdition != 11) (Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Sdk.Sfc)
For help, click:

-> The error basically complains that EngineEdition is not equal to 11 which is SQL Server 2012, but I am on SQL Server 2019.

-> I tried executing below query to check the database properties,

select * from sys.databases where database_id=db_id('JBSDB')

-> The compatibility_level for the database is set to 100 which is SQL Server 2008/ 2008 R2. SQL Server 2019 supports compatibility level starting 100. So not sure why are we seeing this error,

-> I upgraded SSMS to 18.11.1 and the issue never occurred again.

Thank You,
