DB Connect after BI 7 Upgrade - can extract but not display table contents


After an upgrade from 3.1 non-unicode to BI 7 unicode on Windows OS, SQL Server 2005 DB, the DB Connect connection to another SQL Server 2005 database is still established and passes all checks. We are also able to load data from the datasources previously established. However if we right-click the source system -> additional functions -> Select Database Tables (3.x), list the tables/views, double-click a view known to contain data, click 'Display Table Contents' and nothing happens. We can run a load from the datasource connected to the same view.

I have seen one unanswered post with the same issue. If anyone else has come across this problem and has some suggestions, it would be appreciated.

Note we have checked the normal issues on the SQL user having created the views and don't believe this is an authorisation issue. There is no authorization issue posted in SU53.

Support pack level is 16 on Basis and 18 on BW.

Thank you,
