Empty database file is showing as not available

I have a datafile that is connected to the database , the connection is ok .
the datafile is empty (rows are showing but no data) which is normal since i have no data on that table in the database .

when i run a test and bind the empty database file and running the testsuite it’s saying datafile not available
what i expected it to do is not to run the test case but not to block it either

My question is it a bug or is this the normal behavior ? i don’t recall having this issue with older version of katalon (6.2 )
Do you have any suggestions on how to trick it into running the test suite ?

i’m using katalon 7.2.6

Thank you
