livecycle 8.0 data view does not identify data source as table



Livecycle 8 documentation states:

To create a table from a data source

Some data from a data source could be shown in a table. When you connect to a data source, the Data View palette identifies any items that could be tables. LiveCycle Designer also shows which items will become rows in the table if it finds a repeating data group.

however, I have successfully created connections for MS Access tables, SQL server tables and XML files, but none of them were identified as capable of being shown in a table. I have not been able to successfully create or populate a table from a data source. What am I missing?
