Changes In CM Do Not Save

I used database master extensively in 2011 but just switched to 2014 and can't get it to work.

If I import a new table, it appears that it imported properly. I save. Then, if I try to open Creation Master or reopen a new database master instance, all the changes are gone. I've spent the last three hours trying to find a solution but am still falling short. Any assistance would be exceptionally appreciated.

Solved

The issue I was having before is related to the language specific databases. I was importing data into these tables:

playernames
players
teams
teamplayerlinks

However, the language database under data/loc has additional fields that need to be created. In DBM I selected eng_us-meta & eng_us.

If I need to create a team with the ID: 130011, I also need to create fields with the following String IDs:

TeamName_130011
TeamName_Abbr15_130011
TeamName_Abbr10_130011
TeamName_Abbr3_130011

if it were ID 130010, the string IDs would just be:

TeamName_130010
TeamName_Abbr15_130010
TeamName_Abbr10_130010
TeamName_Abbr3_130010

You can put the new team names directly into the database here, or put gibberish in there and then open it in CM and edit it.

The Hash ID will be blank, but you can highlight each hashID field and click "generate hash" in the upper right. It will do that part for you (because Rinaldo is awesome).

I hope this helps someone!
