Generate error when header is misspelled

When editing PI Points, PI Builder does not return any error if one of the headers is wrong or misspelled. Simply, nothing is edited for that header and you  only find out at a later time when looking at the PI point. It would be useful if PI Builder could inform you when one of the headers does not match any PI Point attributes.

    To be more clear, an error should be generated if you try to publish a non-blank value to a PI Point attribute that the PI Point does not have. For example, if you try to edit Location1 for a PI Point of point class "base", then an error should be thrown because "base" PI Points do not have a Location1 attribute. We can generalize this suggestion for any of PI Builder's headers, not just those that are used for PI Points. If the header does not exist at all in PI Builder, then perhaps the font of the header or font of the whole column can be turned red, similar to how the font of rows that contain errors turns red.

    If any of the attribute columns contain a space in front of the text, then PI Builder won't successfully modify or create the attribute. This can be tedious to realize since PI Builder does not return any error messages in this situation.
