When importing an RFEM/RSTAB file into the Autodesk Revit, I get the error message for the load combination saying that 'The given name is not unique Parameter name: name'. How to correct the error?


Description of different load combinations must not be identical otherwise the error message shown in Figure 1 will be displayed. The relevant load combination can be taken from the error message (in Figure 1 Load Combination No. 2). 

The model shown in Figure 2 contains the load combination LC1 and LC2. Both load combinations have the same description 'ULS'. It is necessary to change one of the two descriptions so that an import is possible.
