You have to enable (set meta data) the upload for the new table.

Do the following in the Admin UI:
1. Select Tables
2. Select 'your new table'
3. Click on the table name on the top of the page right after the text
'Select for table edit: "your new table"'
4. Select the 'General Tab'
5. In the middle of the page you'll see:
'Allow file upload for this table' followed by a select box (Yes/No)
6 Select 'Yes' and click on the 'OK' button

Now you should be able to upload stuff for 'your new table', if
you've set the meta data for the table field correctly of course.

Goood luck !
