Duplicates found in column names

Hi there,


new to here so forgive me if the post is incorrect.


I have been trying to import products and keep getting the following error:


"Duplicates found in column names: array....."

I initially downloaded the sample file and removed every line apart from the first. I then edited this slightly and tried re-importing and received the above error. 

I have also tried creating the CSV file in google docs as I have come across errors when using excel on a mac to create a csv file.

Have tried everything and still get the error. I hope I am not missing something simple but any advise/suggestion would be appreciated.

Re: Duplicates found in column names



First of all, check if your  file has a list of required Magento 2 import fields and they correspond to necessary format -

Also sometimes when you are editing CSV on MAC, it adds line endings. So try re-saving the file with UTF-8 encoding, Windows format.
