here is  the solution, and bingo it works like a dream

Here's how I solved this problem.

- Add a new datasource like normal and select the tables you want.
- When you get the message box telling you "One or more error(s) occured while processing the database object(s)..." click ok.
- In the 'Data Sources' window, right-click your data set and select "Edit Dataset with Designer". You should see a box for each table containing an entry at the bottom with the text "Fill,GetData()"
- Right-click on "Fill,GetData()" and select "Configure..."
- In the large edit box it should say "SELECT * FROM `<database>`..`<table>`" Its those double periods that are the problem. Delete one of them so it says "SELECT * FROM `<database>`.`<table>`"
- Press the "Finish" button
- You should now see all the columns of your table.
- Repeat for the rest of your tables.

You should now be able to use your dataset as you please.
