  • So, more information on this, I read through the error pretty close and it mentions synonyms so I figure perhaps I added the same synonym to multiple fields accidentally so I'll figure I should check those. Go to Diagram View and that loads but Synonyms is greyed out. Perfect. So, if that was the problem, I've been blocked from my only way of fixing it. Joyful code quality.

    Hi Seth,

    According to your description, you are experiencing the issue "An item with the same key has already been added.", right? For this error in PowerPivor data model, it might be related to the Synoyms in the data model. Someone had already submit a feedback to Microsoft, which you can see on the link below.

    Besides, in order to see the Synonyms button, you must be running the Click-to-Run version of Excel 2013 and you must have activated Excel with a subscription license (for example, an Office 365 offer that includes the Office client or the Office 365 ProPlus subscription). Please refer to the link below to see the details.

  • Besides, I could always get to the Synonyms button before I started getting this error, but thanks for treating me like a child.

  • Besides, I couldn't have added the synonyms, like I said I did, unless I actually had access to the Synonyms button, which I did, until I didn't, which I pretty much spelled out in the post...
