Running into some issues

How do I edit an advanced variable after creating it ? - If I load it and make changes I am not able to save it again as I see an error message saying variable with same name already exists.

I thought a work around to this would be deleting and recreating a variable. But I am not able to delete any of my self created advanced variables. I get message "Error: Please try again".

You should change the name of the variable when you save it. We prevent users from saving over an existing variable to prevent versioning issues. If you change the name slightly and click Save, it will save it as a new variable. You can then change your old screener conditions and columns to reference the new variable.

You should be able to delete and recreate a variable; I'm not sure why that isn't working for you. Identifying the root cause of that problem will take longer; your best bet is just to load the variable, make your change, and save it with a new name.
