Ambiguous fields in ComplexTableField

Hi there,

I have extended the ComplexTableField to administer ecommerce orders, however on joining the Member table (in the join parameter for ComplexTableField) and trying to filter the results a nice ajax error is returned.

What i am trying to do is show the Order ID, Customer Surname, Order Status, Created Order Date and Last Updated Order Date.

Ajax error below:

Could not filter results: ERROR:Error 256: DATABASE ERROR: Couldn't run query: SELECT `Order`.*, `Order`.ID, if(`Order`.ClassName,`Order`.ClassName,'Order') AS RecordClassName, Surname, Status, Created FROM `Order` LEFT JOIN `Member` ON `Order`.`MemberID` = `Member`.`ID` WHERE (`Member`.`Surname` LIKE '%culs%') GROUP BY `Order`.ID | Column 'Created' in field list is ambiguous At l431

The code i'm actually using here is (ComplexTableField Extension):

function __construct($controller, $name, $sourceClass, $mode, $fieldList, $detailFormFields = null, $sourceFilter = "", $sourceSort = "Created DESC", $sourceJoin = "") {
      $this->mode = $mode;
      parent::__construct($controller, $name, $sourceClass, $fieldList, $detailFormFields, $sourceFilter, $sourceSort, $sourceJoin);
      $this->Markable = true;
      // search
      $search = isset($_REQUEST['TransactionSearch']) ? Convert::raw2sql($_REQUEST['TransactionSearch']) : null;
      if(!empty($_REQUEST['TransactionSearch'])) {
         $this->sourceFilter[] = "`Member`.`Surname` LIKE '%$search%'";

and the actual calling function

$tableFields = array(
         "ID" => _t('TransactionAdmin.ORDERNO', 'Order Number'),
         "Surname" => _t('TransactionAdmin.SURNAME', 'Surname'),
         "Status" =>    _t('TransactionAdmin.STATUS', 'Status'),
         "Created" => _t('TransactionAdmin.CREATED', 'Created')
      // Options for drop down field
      $options['Unpaid'] = 'Unpaid';
      $options['Paid'] = 'Paid';
      $options['Query'] = 'Query';
      $options['Processing'] = 'Processing';
      $options['Sent'] = 'Sent';
      $options['Complete'] = 'Complete';
      $options['MemberCancelled'] = 'MemberCancelled';
      $options['AdminCancelled'] = 'AdminCancelled';
      $popupFields = new FieldSet(
         new DropdownField("Status", _t('TransactionAdmin.STATUS', 'Status'),$options),
         new CheckboxField("Printed", _t('TransactionAdmin.PRINTED', 'Mark as Printed'))
      $idField = new HiddenField('ID', '', $section);
      $table = new TransactionTableField($this, "Order", "Order", $section, $tableFields, $popupFields, ((isset($filter))?array($filter):array()), null, "LEFT JOIN `Member` ON `Order`.`MemberID` = `Member`.`ID`"); //array($filter)
      $fields = new FieldSet(
         new TabSet(   'Root',
            new Tab(_t('TransactionAdmin.ORDERS', 'Orders'),
               new LiteralField("Title", $title),

btw i know the TransactionTableField() function caller is a bit dailywtf :)

Thanks in advance
