When designing a view: Columns with a computed value get a default alias starting with a "$" plus a number (e.g . "$259").
When pasting a column from a different view, I unintendedly can create columns with identical $-aliases. - This may produce side-effects like documents being shown in wrong categories or - hard to detect - date columns carrying a wrong date.
Can I have a message or popup telling me an alias is used twice? Maybe when saving the view?
... alright, I know, normally it is a good style to rename the $#### aliases. But why do I have to care about it?

Would be better if DDE just went ahead and pasted the column, changing the programmatic name if it was going to be duplicated.
