How can I make visible the X and Y fields for a mapped DBMS table?

Occurrence:

After making a DBMS linked table mappable, the fields used to map the X and Y Coordinate are missing
or invisible from the browser window.

Solution:

To display X and Y fields in the browser for a linked DBMS table, follow the instructions from the MapInfo link.

Alternatively, you can view the X and Y fields from the mapped table, by creating a duplicate field in the
database and subsequently link via DBMS.

The best way to achieve this would be to make a query of the table, and place two entries for the X and Y
fields in the query.

Subsequently, link the query in MapInfo via DBMS.
When mapped, the X and Y fields will be visible in the browser window.
