The equivalence of that in the Partnership module is Screen 48.1.  Did you try that?

Yes.  The filing number is a FIN not SSN, but even when I enter it as a SSN still get the same message.

Do you mean EIN?

Did you select the partner from the dropdown or did you manually enter the name of the partnership on Screen 48.1?  If you have entered the name of the partnership and entered the EIN, the diagnostic should go away.  I don't have a problem so long as this is done.

I had the name of the partnership and as you advised, I clicked on the dropdown and selected one of the members.  I guess the name of the partnership is no longer accepted, so have to select an individual.  Thanks for your help! No I'm getting another diagnostic regarding Schedule P, stating that its not included in the efile and must be manually attached as PDF attachment.  Such a pain!

It is not correct that filing under partnership name is no longer accepted.  If one or more partners would otherwise have the same filing requirements for F.5471, the partnership may include their details under Item F to except these partners from filing their own - see filing instructions for more details.
