Get rid of the asterisks (*) and select only those fields you need, taking care to select each field only once.

For starters, try completely taking out the [INPUT D2 DATA].* and [Calculation D2].*, and see if that gives you the results you need.  If not, start adding fields individually until you have all of the fields you need, again taking care to not double-select any fields.
