Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The error message is pretty explanatory.

You have a table with a primary key, and you are trying to insert a new record that matches the primary key of an existing record in the table.

To solve it, review your data and/or your application and do not try to insert duplicate records.

    Do a check to see if the record already exists.  If not, insert.  If so, update or do nothing.
