Oracle SQL Developer Source columns are mapped to a previously mapped target column

Hello expert,

Importing data from Excel file into a truncated table in Oracle database (not sure how to tell which version of Oracle but the Oracle SQL Developer is Version 3.1.7).  In the Data Import Wizard, Step 5 of 5, the Verify button is clicked and all the verifications are marked 'Success'
except the one marked:
'Verifying if source columns have target columns mapped'
It returns
'FAILED      Source columns CRM_REQUESTOR_ID, CRM_REQUESTOR_NAME are mapped to a previously mapped target column'
Some research says that when this happens in a CVS file the semicolon at the end of a line indicates to SQL Developer that there is more data and it looks for more and fails.
But this import is using an Excel (.XLS).
I tried changing the two fields that are failing to data type 'Text' n Excel but this did not help.

What can be changed to get the columns to map properly?

Hi Allen,

I don't have access to SQL Developer at the moment but I remember that the import wizard will let you map columns from input to columns in the database. I think it's step 4 or 5 in the wizard.

Is there any possibility that something changed on the target side, like if these columns were dropped from the table, or renamed after an earlier import?

Thanks Mark and Gerwin, I'm a little red-faced, but someone changed the column name on the Excel file from 'CRM_REQUESTER_ID' to 'CRM_REQUESTOR_ID'. Lined up the names and it worked.
