Unable to deploy form. Getting error message

What to do for this kind of problem. Request to solve the problem

your form cannot be deployed because it contains errors:

Unexpected KoBoCAT error 400: b’{“detail”:"The name column for the ‘qy9yf47’ choice list contains these duplicates: ‘_’. Duplicate names will be impossible to identify in analysis unless a previous value in a cascading select differentiates them. If this is intentional, you can set the allow_choice_duplicates setting to ‘yes’. Learn more: XLSForm.org}’

Welcome to the community, @admin1! Maybe you should download your survey project as xlsform and then validate them through this online validator. The online validator should be able to help you identify syntax issues that are present within your xlsform.

Looking at your error message I presume that your survey project should have some names duplicated. The names from both the survey tab as well as the choices tab should be unique and should not be duplicate.

Hi, I’ve been a lurker around your blog for a few months. I love this article and your entire site! Looking forward to reading more!
