Symptoms

We ran the EIM Table Mapping Wizard on S_ORG_EXT which added all not-mapped columns to the EIM table EIM_ACCNT_DTL. This is fine, but one of the vanilla column mapping it added was DIRECTIONS, which is a long column. We have only just encountered a problem with this in that when running the ddlsync process during dev to test migration, it fails saying that a table can only have 1 column of type long in it. The EIM_ACCNT_DTL already had a vanilla column called NOTE_NOTE which is a long column.

If we want to use this DIRECTIONS column and map values to it, as well as for the NOTE_NOTE column, do we need to have the DIRECTIONS column mapping in a different EIM table? Why is there nothing in the wizard which prevents us from creating two columns of type long in the same table? Perhaps this should be an enhancement?
