Issue/Error Message: When consolidating, you get the following error:

Solution:

This is caused by attempting to consolidate when two forecasts have slight variations of a record name, e.g. Forecast 1 – Sales record = “Sales”                   Forecast 2 - Sales record = “sales”.


To resolve, update to version 3.1.041 or above or fix the names to match.
