Lacerte W2 import

Level 1

I am trying to import the W2 into Lacerte electronically. I put in the Fed-ID and I get the correct employer name. Then, I put in the Control number, Box 1 contents and the SSN, I get the following error:

"An error occurred attempting to store tax import data for tax preparer retrieval..."

I have tried it multiple times and checked the numbers are right. I still get the same error. Please advise.

Get a copy of w2 from client and input it manually. 

Here's wishing you many Happy Returns

What is the point paying for professional tax software if it makes one input data manually, which highly error-prone?!?!?
