Query is getting error Duplicate values causing conflict

Communicator

I have this data
Owner Branch# Bname
O1 B1 Bname1
O1 B2 Bname2
O2 B1 Bname3
O2 B3 Bname4
O2 B4 Bname5
O3 B3 Bname6
O3 B5 Bname7

I need to put the Bname in a dropdown where depending on the Owner (token) but the query is getting error Duplicate values causing conflict because of the multiple Branch#. I cannot dedup Branch# as this will be passed on as token to other panels when owner is chosen. If I do dedup, it will only pass the 1st occurence and other owner will not have any Branch# to chose from.

Any idea on how to manage the SPL?
Thanks!

When its passed as token to other panels along with the Owner , there should be no impact of deleting duplicate branch number in your input query as your selection from lookup or index will be based on combination of branch# and Owner. Can you please paste your code so it will be easy to understand the question.

Here is the sample code for the dropdown:

>   <input type="dropdown"
> token="report"
> searchWhenChanged="true">
>         <label>Report Type</label>
>         <fieldForValue>foo</fieldForValue>
>         <search>
>           <query>| inputlookup foo.csv  | sort foo foo_label | where
> report_label="foo" 
>         </search>
>         <change>
>           <set token="foolabel">$label$</set>
>         </change>
>         <fieldForLabel>foo_label</fieldForLabel>
>         <default>foo</default>
>         <initialValue>foo</initialValue>
>       </input>
>       <input type="dropdown" token="foo2_id"
> searchWhenChanged="true">
>         <label>Foo2</label>
>         <fieldForLabel>foo_NM</fieldForLabel>
>         <fieldForValue>foo2_ID</fieldForValue>
>         <search base="foo2_metadata">
>           <query>| dedup foo2_ID | fields foo_NM foo2_ID  | sort
> foo_NM</query>
>         </search>
>         <change>
>           <set token="foo2_label">$label$</set>
>         </change>
>         <choice value="*">ALL</choice>
>         <default>*</default>

>       </input>
>       <input type="dropdown" token="foo3" searchWhenChanged="true">

>         <fieldForLabel>foo3_NM</fieldForLabel>
>         <fieldForValue>foo3_NO</fieldForValue>

During the initial load of the dropdown values, there's a duplicate error since there are multiple branch# (Owner=* and branch#=*). when a specific Owner is chosen, then the error disappears as it already has value for branches.
