Append in dataflow treats same field name from each input data set as a unique value

I have 2 data inputs that I'm appending to a new dataset.  Dataset 1 and Dataset 2 both have a field called ImportDate of date data type.  When i append the two tables using the append widget, a new column is added ot the resultling output data set resulting into 2  ImportDate fields on each row.  I've triple checked that the ImportDate is exactly the same in name, and data type.

 

Any ideas?

Try explicitly setting the data type using the SET COLUMN TYPE tile.  Then delete the APPEND ROWS tile and add it back in again.  

 

If that doesn't work you can also use the SELECT tile to explicitly name the columns, you might have an invisible special character or empty space.
