What's Causing This Error

You may run into this error if you are trying to create a table with the same name within the same region.

Solution: Here's How To Resolve It

To resolve the error, try any of the following ways:

  1. Check the list of tables in your DynamoDB service using the AWS Management Console, the AWS CLI, or the ListTables operation to confirm whether the table you're trying to create already exists.
  2. If the table exists, you can choose a different name for the table or delete the existing table before recreating it.
  3. Make sure you are providing the correct table name and the correct credentials.
