Phantom Duplicate Name

This issue occurred in one of my client files and I probably fixed it the hard way, but it worked. I created a new customer name with the same data as the old problem customer name, then changed all of the associated transaction to contain the new name leaving no transactions with the old problem name. Then I deleted the old customer name and verified the file without errors. And finally I changed the new name to the original name and re-verified without errors. This also worked but probably required more energy...............just an alternative way to fix the problem.

WOW, that was a lot of work....

I bet you are glad you didn't have 10,000 transactions for that client to change.....

My way takes only seconds (or a few minutes) at most.
