Error: User name '[Name]' already exists. Select another name.

When entering a deleted user name as a new user Error: User name '[Name]' already exists. Select another name occurs.
It is not possible to reuse user names that have been deleted.  Enter a different user name or add a number (such as 1) to the end of the user name.

Note: When you attempt to delete a user name in Administration - Set up system security, a message appears letting you know that if the record is deleted the specific user name cannot be used again.
