Reimporting Existing Data Error: Duplicate Column Heading Exists RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a partner-hosted deployment of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011, with IFD. I am logged in as the Administrator.

    In attempts to update pricing for 2014, I exported all Products, with List Price as a column. I chose the option to "Make this data available for reimporting by including required column headings." Using Excel, I updated the List Price for all records by 6%, saved, and then attempted to reimport. I received the error "A duplicate column heading exists," with the following log file:

    Unhandled Exception: System.ServiceModel.FaultException`1[[Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk.OrganizationServiceFault, Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35]]: A duplicate column heading exists.Detail:
    <OrganizationServiceFault xmlns:i="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/xrm/2011/Contracts">
      <ErrorDetails xmlns:d2p1="http://schemas.datacontract.org/2004/07/System.Collections.Generic" />
      <Message>A duplicate column heading exists.</Message>
      <InnerFault i:nil="true" />
      <TraceText i:nil="true" />

    I didn't change any of the column headings, or replace any of the column headings. I only replaced the cell contents under List Price for each row. Does anyone have an idea of how to proceed?

    Thank you,
