I have tried numerous times to create a table in MySQL (via PHP MyAdmin) and I keep getting the same error:  #1146 - Table 'cibcontacts.customerstatus' doesn't exist.  So, I created a new table called example, and tried to rename it to customerstatus, but it says #1050 - Table 'customerstatus' already exists.  Gggggrrrrrr!  Why is it doing this?  This has happened before and it has been such a pain to work around.  Help!!!???
