Why are duplicate Activity IDs Imported from an XML file renumbered differently than the same Activity IDs when Imported from an XER file?


1. Create a Project with the following Activities:

Activity ID Activity Name
2420_40_2150 2420_40_2150
2420-40_2150 2420-40_2150
2420_40-2150 2420_40-2150
242040-2150 242040-2150
2420-402150 2420-402150
2420_40_2160 2420_40_2150
2420-40_2160 2420-40_2150
2420_40-2160 2420_40-2150
242040-2160 242040-2150
2420-402160 2420-402150

2. Export both to XER and XML.
3. Modify both Export files and replace all 6s with 5s in Activity IDs to create duplicate IDs.
4. Import both Projects to create new Projects using default Import Configurations/Templates.
5. Note differences in Imported XML duplicate IDs.
