Create entity: Attribute names cannot contain the following characters


  • I've installed SQL Server 2012 RTM on my Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard.

    I have configured Master Data services and installed the Excel add-in. No problems yet.

    I import one table from my database to Excel but when I try to make an entity of the table, I get the following error message:

    MDS error

    I'm putting my ID's into the "The column that contains a unique identifier" and the name column to "The column that contains names".

    I also tried to make a dummy ID -column with just numbers ranging from 1 - 60000 -> still the same error. I tried to put an empty ID-column and specify no name column -> still the same error.

    What could be the reason I keep getting the error even though there are no special characters in either of my ID column or the name column?
