Newbie: Creating a DataSource

I'm trying to create a basic DataSource and am encountering a strange error.

1) Right-click application component -> Create DataSource

2) Give name, pick source system, pick type of "Master Data Attributes", hit OK.

3) "Change DataSource" screen comes up

4) Enter descriptions on "General Info." tab

5) Switch to Extraction tab

6) Enter table name.

Then I hit the problems:

A) If I click the popup button next to the table name and click execute I get the error:

"Some table name(s)like: product are invalid

Removed from selection ->Long Text"

What does that mean?

B) Can the system auto-populate the input-fields? I can't get this to happen.

C) If I try to manually enter field definitions, I get a variety of strange errors (not worth posting)

What else can I do at this point to move forward? I want to import the attributes data from my external database into SAP.
