Critical diagnostic warning ref #5218 - How to I clear this?! Am I able to e-file with this warning as the returns look correct?!

Critical diagnostic warning ref #5218: "efile: for California e-file purposes, CA state wages on Form W-2 must add up to total CA wages reported on the CA tax return." This client is a part year resident of CA. They had foreign wages before moving into CA that is subtracted from CA wages. The CA return shows total income including W-2 wages and capital gains, but apparently doesn't match just the W-2 wages. How to I clear this?! Am I able to e-file with this warning as the returns look correct?!
