Error description

  • When importing a CSV file, the importer does not recognize the
    attribute listed in the first column because it adds invalid
    characters to the attribute name: '???'
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    1. open any DOORS module
    2. change the first column in the view to show the absolute
    number attribute
    3. Export the module from the menu File ? Export ?
    Spreadsheet... selecting all defaults
    4. Now in the same module import this newly created CSV File ?
    Import ? Spreadsheet... select all defaults
    
    Results:
    Dialog displays that says: Create new Integer attribute
    ???'Absolute Number'?
    
    Expected Results:
    It should recognize the Absolute Number as an existing attribute
    and not display this dialog.
    
    Notes:
    This worked fine through DOORS 9.3.0.7. Introduced in DOORS
    9.4.0.0 and still exists in DOORS 9.5.1.2.
    This is not limited to the Absolute Number attribute, ??? is
    added to any attribute you have as the first column.
