Carsten,

Thanks for enhancing the error message for when users
like me make silly mistakes!

I think I was in the middle of adding a heading to the
column name, got distracted and never completed
the work. 

Writing the tutorial has helped consolidate my understanding
of how these features work, especially effort, column view
and refile targets.

Charles
