Once this is set, please re-run the “Save to Startup Task” and it should now run successfully.

This is a known issue and a permanent resolution will be included in the Spectrum 10.3.0 release.

For a more stable workaround, try adding credentials to each line of the table. Thus even if the table is "sorted" there will always be credentials on line 2 which is the line that works.
