Ran into an issue trying to copy over a row to a destination sheet


Can anyone help me understand what this is? I have never ran into this issue before, but this now seems to be an issue.

    That error message means exactly what it says. You have a non-system column in your source sheet that matches one in the destination that is a system column. System columns can be renamed, but they remain system columns. So if there's an AutoNumber system column in your destination sheet called "Record Number", and a Text/Number field in your source sheet also called "Record Number," you'll get this error. Rename one of the two matching columns and you'll be all set.
