Trouble joining table

I am trying to do just a basic US county thematic map and join population data to the county boundary file.  The source data to join is in Excel and seems to convert well using the  conversion tool. ArcGIS 10.2 seems to force me into a default.gdb.  I can't just save it as a table for some reason-- so I go that route letting it save to default.gdb.  I can add the table and open it and it looks fine. When I try to join the table of data to the county boundary layer I can see the table but no fields appear in the dropdown.  I have attached a print screen where we see no fields and the mxd. We tried opening and reopening the map project but still cannot see the table fields in the join dialogue box.
