    Connector Reply Error due to duplicate field name in MSAccess query

    Dean Morris

      I am posting this in case someone else has a similar issue using QlikSenseDesktop and they get and unexplained "Connector Reply Error"


      I had an existing data load script in the data load editor which was grabbing data from a MS Access database via an odbc connection.

      My data source/table was an Access query.


      Previously I had manually added new fields to the load editor script  without any problems.

      After a specific new field I started getting a "Connector Reply Error" *  when trying to load data.


      I learned that my Query in MS Access had the same field name listed twice (the new field I was trying to add to the script).

      It makes sense now that I see it.  but the problem was difficult to identify.


      Note: If you preview your data with data connections->'select data' the duplicate fields  may be identified by field names starting with "expr:".


      I hope this helps.
