SYMPTOMS

When you perform a mail merge by using an Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) connection to a non-English version of a Microsoft Business Solutions - Navision 4.0 database, Microsoft Navision does not display the list of available tables. At the same time, you receive the following error message:
Could not obtain the table list from the existing datasource.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because the mail merge uses the table caption instead of the original table name to retrieve data from the tables.
