[ODK Community] error: form already exists for this namespace/id attribute

Hi Pam,

You cannot have two forms with the same ID on the same server and it
sounds like your form designing tool doesn't let you change the ID

Once you have the XML, use a good text editor (e.g., Notepad++ on
Windows, TextWrangler on Mac) to edit the XML files to change the form
ID. It's the line after . You can see an example here:

Trying to upload two unrelated xml forms (not a change in version of the same existing form) to ODK, but I am getting this error:

Error: Form Already Exists for this Namespace/Id attribute org.opendatakit.aggregate.exception.ODKFormAlreadyExistsException: Form definition file has changed but does not specify a form version. Update the form version and resubmit.

Thanks in advance for any advice/feedback.
