Effects of "Merge Duplicate Fields"

The function merges similar/ Duplicated  fields per each form, and it points all the duplicated fields to the first field. 

The function does not delete the duplicated fields from the given Form_Field table in the Database , neither  from the form Layout, but t just points the duplicated Fields to one single Field.

an example below is a duplicated field "NewX" in a form.

  1. Before the Duplicated Fields are merged                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    when u search in "Find field Elements" for a field to add to the form, all the Duplicated Fields are returned as different fields.

  2. After you Merge the Duplicated Fields                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          when u search for the Duplicated field, it is returned as a merged field
