Change an attribute name

Magento let me create an attribute called ‘type’ without a problem. However there is a problem, when working with importing and exporting, it appears that there is another field called ‘type’ with the value of ‘simple’ in it for everything.

When exported, the 2 fields merge together so I see every product without my ‘type’ attribute applied to it having the value of ‘simple’.

I’m not sure what it’s for but I assume I have to find a way to change my attributes name, correct?

I just changed the values in the DB and it seems to work. Hope something doesn’t come back to bite me in the ass smile
