We received a small list of tables for Smartlist section (version 11).  We typed it in our SQL and it seems not to exist.

What are these tables used for? And are they the same for version 9 and 10?

Those tables do not exist in SQL in my out-of-the-box installation of GP 2010, GP 10.0 or GP 9.0.  However, I do see them in the resource descriptions inside GP, so my guess based on this is that maybe they are temporary tables used by SmartList?  What are you trying to accomplish with these tables?

Thanx.  No really accomplishment, just wanted to view them, see how they work or what are they for, etc.  Also seen the same for Smartlist Builder.

It says ' Physical Name' and also 'Table' in the excel we were sent, so we figure they were tables.

I checked both views and tables in the DYNAMICS and company databases and do not see these anywhere in SQL.

So why are these tables referred in resources?

Strange, there must be a reason.

Understood, but when in SQL query analyzer, the table names it says it doesn't exist.  

Why there is a table name (Physical Name),  Display Name, Technical Name?

Technical Name is used in Dexterity
Display Name is the user-friendly name
Physical Name is the SQL Table name

Try adding Favorites Smartlist lookups and then check the tables.

Prior placing the question we did, for example created a smartlist favorite for GL accounts and to "SELECT * FROM ASILOC09" and the following error appear:

Msg 208, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Invalid object name 'ASILOC09'.

We thought that too.

Have you used Tools -> Setup -> COmpany -> Advanced Lookups to add the lookup?

Are you running the SQL statement against Company DB?

Against Company DB not DYNAMICS, right?

If you don't get anything in ASILOC09 after customizing Advanced Lookup, there must be something wrong. Something like the customized lookup was not saved correctly.

You are right, I was referring to ASILOC90 and 50 rather than ASILOC09 and 05. I've check in Dexterity and found that ASILOC0X tables are added to the lookup forms but not used at all. Most probably, these tables are be obsolete.

No, you didn't get me. I mean, these tables were existed in earlier GP versions, and kept there for compatibility only.

I said "Most probably, there's no use for the tables you're asking about, and they are still existed in the documentation for backward compatibility purpose only."
