I’m trying to create multiple of the same overlays in a scene and I’m getting an error

I’m getting an error saying “You’ve created multiple overlays with the same name in your script; any animations will only apply to the most recently created one.” What does this mean and how do I fix it?? Here’s my script:

INT SCHOOL OFFICE OL - DAY

cut to zone 1

music music_gloomyprogression

@transition fade in 5

@pan to zone 2

@pause for a beat

@pause for a beat

@pause for a beat

@overlay INT. SCHOOL CLASSROOM CHAIR - DAY create

@overlay INT. SCHOOL CLASSROOM CHAIR - DAY create

@overlay INT. SCHOOL CLASSROOM CHAIR - DAY create

&POLICE OFFICER DAVE spot 0.828 126 223 in zone 2

&POLICE OFFICER TRACY spot 0,795 41 227 in zone 2

&YOU spot 831 258 214 in zone 2

If you want more than one overlay, you have to create a new one from the existing one like this:

@overlay INT. SCHOOL CLASSROOM CHAIR - DAY_2 create from INT. SCHOOL CLASSROOM CHAIR - DAY
