Common error messages
This section is about the errors that might occur when you run the Data Migration Tool, and how to deal with them.

Destination fields instead of source ones.
Some Magento 1 entities (in most cases, coming from extensions) do not exist in the Magento 2 database.
This message appears because the Data Migration Tool runs internal tests to verify that tables and fields are consistent between source (Magento 1) and destination (Magento 2) databases.
Install the corresponding Magento 2 extensions from Magento Marketplace
If the conflicting data originates from an extension which adds own database structure elements, then the Magento 2 version of the same extension may add such elements to the destination (Magento 2) database, thus fixing the issue.
