4.12. Same Input Appears Twice in Tornado Graph

Applies to: @RISK 5.x–7.x

To solve the problem, open the Model Window and find the inputs with duplicate names. Click in the Name column for one or both of them, and enter the desired name.

Are the same-named inputs in the same cell? In that case, you might actually want to combine them. Here are some guidelines:
