Description

If a wrong PK is selected, the error message does not refer to the PK (I understand it is probably not possible to know what exactly is
wrong), and the cursor indicates wrongly that something is being processed.

Please provide more information.

I select a table, and a field that is in fact not unique, so not a good PK candidate. If I try to load the table in this way, I get an error that does not state something like "The field you selected is not a suitable primary key", so it is difficult for the user to understand what is wrong.
Furthermore, the mouse cursor indicates some waiting state, but nothing is happening.

Um, I was asking for more information - not to (slightly) rephrase the old ;)
Which error message do you get?

closing for the lack of feedback

IMHO this should not be closed: the fix is easy, once the string is found, and the current situation is misleading for the user.
