I am new to MapInfo and I need to combine several tables together, by copying and pasting. I need for all the tables to have the same table structure, however when I try to modify these tables (table>maintenance>table structure>view/modify table) it won't allow me to change the order of the fields. When i try to, i get the following error: "cannot perform this operation on table (table name)." Why won't it let me change the data structure? any suggestions?
The picture is of the dialogue window i get when i attempt to modify table structure. As you can see, it doesn't look like the regular window. But i don't know why or how to change it.
When i move my fields to the order I need them in, and click OK, is when i get the error message.
