Buggy duplication search in table

Somehow, my “go-to” duplication filter has given me many false positive results.

Anyone seen this before?

tried using lookup too but clearly coda thinks these “entry data” are the same.

So I figured out a problem, I used a button to copy a certain column to the table, the button formula is recognising the “mywallets-matic” is a numbers column, but it is certainly seceted as text in the table.

The are the only columns that (after copying to the new table), has been returning the wrong data
