Then I would suspect there is an issue with the company setup.  Can you verify all the databases are spelled correctly and in all caps?

Yes, I checked that and added another company in the company list, but still have the same problem.

Two more things you can check are:

1. Does your ODBC connection specify a default database?  Sometimes FRx has a problem with that, so make sure that box is unchecked.
2. Does the frl_ofsi_data table exist in your DYNAMICS database?

Also, what version and service pack of FRx?
