If we check the Help file of Confirm to check the functionality of "Save Named Selection" Button then we can see that.

"The Data Query Preview screen will show a Named Selection button for a Data Source that has a link (via the 'Linked Table' tab) to the Feature Table. Click on the Named Selection button to save the currently displayed data as a Named Selection."

This means that, while creating a Data Source, we need to make sure that we include Feature table in Linked Table list in the Data Source. This can be achieved by Joining any table with Feature table.

Once you will save the SQL of the Data Source, verify the Linked Table tab and see that Feature table is there in the list. If it is there then preview the Data Source and you will see that "Save Named Selection" button is enabled.
