I've already read the microsoft article. I uninstalled and reinstalled Enterprise Manager, and I still get the problem.

Tried your workaround and it doesn't recognize the tables I'm using -- must be doing something wrong.

Will try on another machine now.

In QA, you need to make sure it's connected to the correct server and database. Also, if you have multiple copies of the database (such as two test databases, or a production database and a development database), then make sure the views exist on the database you're connected to. Can't think of anything else at the moment...

Works on another machine per the KB article. Will see if my SQL admin can apply the patch.

Your workaround works -- I was connecting to the wrong database.

Thanks!
