If you have two rooks, standing on different files (one of them on the
d-file), that could capture on
Rdxd2 is the correct notation.
If you have two rooks on the
d-file, and both can take on
d2, then use the rank number to disambiguate, for instance
This is according to the Algebraic System required by FIDE's Laws of Chess (see appendix C, paragraph C.10).
In the very, very rare case that you have more than two pieces of the same kind that can capture on the same square, it might be necessary to use both rank and file to disambiguate. This I think will never be necessary with rooks?
There is no problem with this notation . Chess Board is divided into 1-8 ranks and a-h files .
When a Rook standing on different ranks and have one common attacking Square or same Piece then we use R(1-8) * Square number . eg of such moves are R7e3,R2e3 .
When Rook standing on different Files and have one common attacking Square or same Piece then we use R(a-h) * Square number. eg of such common moves when we are almost completing the Development Rad1,Rfe1.
You may even remove the asterisk in both cases .
If this notation is needed to differentiate between 2 rooks on the "d" file, then it is valid, If there's only one rook on the "d" file, it's not invalid, but redundant.
