Description ookev 2009-01-07 10:55:08 UTC
When connected to an external db, if the user specifies a new external db, the
table list is cleared but does not update the GUI with the tables from the new
db. The user must then force a GUI update by e.g. clicking on another tab
(forms/reports/queries) and then go back to the Tables tab to see the new tables.

This may be specific to Microsoft Access databases.

1. Launch Base to start the Database Wizard.
2. Select Connect to an existing database -> Microsoft Access and click Next.
3. Browse to an .mdb file and click Next.
4. Select "No, do not register the database" and clear all checkmarks.
5. Click Finish and an .odb file will be generated.
6. Open the .odb file.
7. Select Edit -> Database -> Properties.
8. Browse to another .mdb file and click OK.

yes I can confirm it
I think it works as designed

It is not only a problem with Access DBs

so I need help to judge it

maybe clu can give a short comment.

this behavior is between bug/feature enhancement and worth to be
rethought/improved ..

@oj: you asked for improvements / bad workflow etc. lately .. so please have a
look at this, if you have a little time ;)
