Reports does that when you select the same column twice in the same report and don't use column aliases to distinguish them.
Is it causing you an actual problem?

Yes, that happens sometimes.

Try to do the following:
- open the query
- remove the PLANT column from the SELECT statement
- click <OK>
- make sure that the column is no longer visible in the Data Model Editor
- reopen the query
- include the PLANT column into the SELECT statement again
- click <OK>
- it should be there now, having its original name

  • if the column is used in many places, it is used with its original name: PLANT. "Invalid" name, the one you are trying to get rid of, is PLANT1. So, the only place it is "invalid" is the original query. I don't think that this should be a problem (i.e. my previous suggestion *should* work) - at least, I believe so.
  • "referencing an invalid column" means that you didn't use it correctly. If you use table aliases, you used the wrong one. If you think that you referenced the right table, then it doesn't contain that column.

OK, but I don't have anything new to say. Remove the column, include it back again.

1) Try aliasing the column to it's own name.
2) Is the change of name actually causing you a problem? Why does it matter?
