Create a translation table

I can remember years ago being able to create a translation table and changing the sort sequence values so I could give certain letters the same sort sequence so they would sort together, such as E and R sort the same. I can still create the translation table, but I cannot edit it to change the sort sequence. Am I doing something wrong or could this be an authority problem?

You can only create a translation table. If you change the source, you can recreate the table. It is not an authority problem.
