Sharepoint BDC - Check Names not working

ITdesk asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-05
Long story short:

I have a BDC application definition in my sharepoint 2007 server, which is pulling data from a SQL server.

Some of this data is the Employee Name.

What i'm trying to do, is that when a user is writing a portion of the employee name in the BDC column (in the custom list) and then clicks 'Check Names', it will show him a list of the available names it found. (Like this user column type:) http://img577.imageshack.us/i/goodj.png/

now, what happens in real life when using BDC, is that i dont see the list of available users.

Any help solving this issue would be greatly appreciated!
