Yes, it's very odd. And it doesn't happen all the time. In this last case, I had 5 tables I was creating DA for, and 3 worked fine, 2 didn't. I even shut down DW, restarted machine, etc. No luck. I remembered I had this thread going, so went back to read, and saw the ESC key option, which worked to get out, but didn't work to solve. So checked and unchecked the "delete" button option (several times) in one of the steps, and that cleared it up so I could finish the process on those that weren't behaving.
