Make sure to have the $TCA array properly set up. Otherwise TYPO3 ignores
your data.
Please check to module configuration -> table configuration array and the
manual doc_core_tca.

Best regards

Yikes, I'm obviously in over my head and sinking fast! In my ext_tables.php file here is what I have:

if (!defined ('TYPO3_MODE')) {
	die ('Access denied.');
$TCA['tx_beachsamples_pcg'] = array (
	'ctrl' => array (
		'title'     => 'LLL:EXT:beachsamples/locallang_db.xml:tx_beachsamples_pcg',		
		'label'     => 'reference',	
		'tstamp'    => 'tstamp',
		'crdate'    => 'crdate',
		'cruser_id' => 'cruser_id',
		'default_sortby' => 'ORDER BY date1 DESC',	
		'enablecolumns' => array (		
			'disabled' => 'hidden',	
			'starttime' => 'starttime',	
			'endtime' => 'endtime',
		'dynamicConfigFile' => t3lib_extMgm::extPath($_EXTKEY).'tca.php',
		'iconfile'          => t3lib_extMgm::extRelPath($_EXTKEY).'icon_tx_beachsamples_pcg.gif',


	$_EXTKEY . '_pi1',
	t3lib_extMgm::extRelPath($_EXTKEY) . 'ext_icon.gif'

if (TYPO3_MODE == 'BE') {
	$TBE_MODULES_EXT['xMOD_db_new_content_el']['addElClasses']['tx_beachsamples_pi1_wizicon'] = t3lib_extMgm::extPath($_EXTKEY).'pi1/class.tx_beachsamples_pi1_wizicon.php';

Is that where I am supposed to be looking? Thanks for your patience.
