I am not sure if this a bug ( or feature request) but database objects placed in a custom view cannot be seen by the tableview object dataset property. My workaround is to drag/drop to the object folder of the window. However the database object in the custom view is lost. My preference would be to copy the object as to keep the custom view as a repository. Of course if the dataset property can see the custom view query - either hard set or via the forthcoming language or both - everything would be nicely tied up.
