This bug has been corrected in E-Prime 2.0 (220.127.116.11).
When generating an experiment with a List column that has a '.' (period) in it, such as MyObject.MyVariable, the experiment will fail to generate/run.
The reason is due to an issue with E-Studio generating constants similar to attrib_MyObjectMyVariable to aleviate generating quoted strings in the final .ebs2 output.
Upgrade to E-Prime 18.104.22.168 or later.
This workaround is intended only for those who are unable to update to the version of E-Prime that contains the bug fix:
Avoid using '.' (period) in List column names.
