Hi,
Being a newbie at Printshop Mail, I probably will post a number of times from now on...
I use Access tables as adress files for my mailings. But having lots of tables in the database, i would like to see which table i use for the job i am working with.
Is there some way to show the TABLE name (not the DATABASE name) for the job you are working in?

I'm afraid not, there is no way to see the current table name in the UI of PSM6. It is stored in the psmd file though, which is readable XML.

In case anyone is wondering if we're planning on changing this, these are some of the table-related improvements in the next release of PSM:
- The current table name is displayed in the Data Fields pane
- There is a new menu item called Select Table
- The table selection dialog will show a preview of table contents
- Besides tables you can also use views and non-parameterized stored procedures
- You can select different tables in an automated workflow (scripting)
