Please i need your help… I’ am trying to upload and xls file to KoboToolbox and it gives the following error.
Name: test 3.xlsx
ValueError: There are duplicates in the name column
The xls file is correct! I never had any problems in uploding xls files. I also downloaded a deployed xls form in order to be sure 100% that the file is correct. The problem started 08.11.2021 in the evening. The same above error is produced with all my forms. Other user have the same problem!
when uploading the xlsform in the online validator it produces the following error:
Error: There are more than one survey elements named ‘harvest’ (case-insensitive) in the section named ‘data’.
@Kal_Lam, I have the same error when I try to upload a form in kobo. However, in my case I could not detect any duplicate in the name column. Also, the forms that I tried to upload were already imported to Kobo and did not have many changes.
thanks but it doesn’t solve the problem: I have the same file with no duplicates in the column name in “survey” and “choices”, and I still can’t import the file.
It must be something in the system: how is possible that ALL my xlsforms. that I previously deployed are not working since Monday evening (the forms have duplicates in the column name but this as never been a problem!)?. The same for other colleagues. Thanks a lot!
