2979891 - IBP: Attribute descriptions in Excel show both as ID - ID and ID - Description


You have linked a Description attribute (i.e. Attribute2) to a corresponding ID attribute (Attribute1) in a master data type in the IBP Planning Areas app.

In excel, when defining a filter for the ID attribute, in the list of available values you see:

  • ID - ID and ID - Description values when the ID - Description option is selected, 
  • OR, ID and Description values when the Description option is selected (see the example screen shot), 
  • OR, double ID values when the ID option is selected
