This considered change only applies to cases where the user has selected more than one file from the directory tree.

Often data models in one file are copied to other files in order to extend the model for handling special or additional cases. This is especially true of sample files downloaded as a resource for a book or class. If such files are selected for processing at the same time, the capturing of measures from one file which also exist in another file may be considered (by some users) as a waste of space in the reported results.

Considering implementing this feature as an option available to users before displaying results.

If this considered change has value to you, please comment.

Code has been written to provide option to remove duplicate measures from results when opening multiple Excel 2010 workbooks with data models. Currently testing with other new features. Expect next version release within two weeks (today is September 24, 2014).
