    Are the columns the same data type? Do you have extra / trailing whitespace in the column names? Domo should recognize them as one column if they're named exactly the same.

    Hi,

    Could you confirm that there is no trailing or extra white space in the naming of the columns.

    I have seen this cause this problem before, often there is a 'space' character at the end of the column name causing them to be registered as two unique column names.

    You should see the option like the image below when named the same, where you can select which dataset drives the list of filter values / options.
