If a table that extends another table is deleted and re-created with the same name, the label shows the label of the parent table, list view and record view.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Log in as the Admin user.

  2. Navigate to System Definition > Tables, and click New to create a table with the following values and then click Submit.

    Label: testtable
    Table: u_testtable
    Parent table: Task

  3. Delete the table records and then delete the table.

    For more information, see the documentation topic Delete a table.

  4. Create a table with the same values again:

    Label: testtable
    Table: u_testtable
    Parent Table: Task

    The table record shows the label as Task.


This happens because the newly re-created table does not have the required Label sys_documentation record.

To work around the issue, create the Label record manually for each language that is active on the instance:

  1. Navigate to /sys_documentation_list.do and filter the list to show records from your table. For example, /sys_documentation_list.do?sysparm_query=name=u_test

  2. Create a new record. The table field should be pre-selected to match the affected table

  3. Enter the required values in Label and Plural fields, leaving Element field empty

  4. Enter en in Language field and save the record

  5. Repeat steps 2-4 for each language and set the Language value to the code of the language you are creating the Label for

  6. Confirm the issue is resolved for each of the languages
