"Expand fields / Compact fields" greyed out in Hitlist Settings

Hi everyone,

So, my client has a MT database that they keep updating. Terms are thus added or revised and old terms become obsolete or are refused. However, it would be nice to have the status after the term in the MT box so I can see instantly which is the preferred term (I believe this was once the case way back when, Trados 2007 I think) as they are not always the first in the list.

I've had a look around the settings and apparently this can theoretically be done under "Hitlist Settings" > "Fields" > "Select Fields". The only problem I have is that the database itself is greyed out in the tree here. Is this down to the fact that "Expand fields / Compact fields" is also greyed out? Have selected and deselected everything but "refused" "approved" is still not appearing in the MT box.

Any ideas? Is this a setting that the client can/has to make in MultiTerm?

Thanks in advance for your help.
