Excel Macro 2 x Dim declarations?

Hello,

I'm trying to define two names via the dim function. These names are being defined for two different non-active sheets.

When I run the macro below I get the message:
Duplicate declaration in current scope

- with the error highlighting row 11.

What's the best way of defining these names for non active sheets?

Dim uniqueIDformulas As Long

Set ws = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Unique ID")
uniqueIDformulas = ws.Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row

Dim dataformulas As Long
Dim ws As Worksheet
Set ws = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Data")
dataformulas = ws.Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row

'Add forumula columns to the Unique ID Sheet
    Sheets("Unique ID").Select
    Range("L2").Select
    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = _

Nevermind. I figured it out. I had to change the name of the 'ws' reference to 'ws2'. See successful code:
