In the Data Sources Properties dialog there is Table names pattern which is regular expression for including matching tables. I have a problem that there is no support for excluding tables.
I need to exclude some tables, because in our testing database there are like 30 tables with strange names like "BIN$QGKrW0b/UrXgQDg5xlFNTw==$0" which I can't normally see but the data source dialog will somehow discover them. On data source refresh button I get an error (see image file) because the table name contains some slashes.
Theoretically I can try to write negative regex but you should know that this is very complicated. Man can spend hours just figuring out how write one.
