Question for Level 1 part 4.8.2 Activity: Import Data into E2 Employees# List

By following the cours, I'm in the level 1, part 4. I'd like to import the employees liste in my module. 

 

The E2 Employees# list is already created under General Lists in Model Settings and its list Subset. If I understand, this is a number liste, I import its liste like other fich csv. 

But the import is failed,It shows : "Cannot import record into numbered list as it has a new name (Shala Engle)".

 

I don't understand the error, perhaps the mapping is not right. Could anyone can help me, please. 

I capture the screen for the operation to help you understand my situation. 

Thank you a lot.

Hi,

 

For numbered lists, the Name is actually the system-generated #ID number, so we should not map the list name. The name of the list comes from the properties(Display Name in your case).

Remove the column 1 mapping and run the import and make sure Employee Name Column is mapped to the Display Name property.

Check this,

Hi  @VIGNESH.M ,

 

Thank you very well for your help, I follow your tips: delete column 1, but it dosn't work. 

It shows always error:

 

Property-based hierarchy import has disallowed duplicate properties for given key in source data - cannot proceed

 

Did I do the right mapping? 

Thank you.

Hi @clarashao , 

 

As @VIGNESH.M  suggested, remove the first mapping. Leave it blank, don't select Column headers.
