How to use a variable name that is the same as a field name in the MapBasic Window

Products affected: MapInfo Pro™ MapBasic™
 
Users cannot use a variable name that is the same as a field name in the MapBasic Window. This is a known limitation. You can do this in a compiled MapBasic application but this is not advised as it may cause conflicts further in the code.

It is recommended to always use unique variable names.
