Cause


In tools with an embedded select, it is possible to rename multiple variables with the same name. 

 


 

Resolution

 

Make sure that each variable has a unique name. In the case where you are renaming a field that already has that name, the duplicate will be renamed by appending the copy number; in the example in the third image below, the duplicate [ZIP] was renamed [ZIP2].
