Partnership form 1065 diagnostic, Partnership Representative

Highlighted
Level 2

Not sure if there is a glitch in the software related to completion of the "Designation of Partnership Representative" section on page 3 of the 1065.  This LLC has a general partner as representative.  However,  I am receiving a critical diagnostic that states that "one or more of the designation of partnership fields for the designated individuals information is missing. (ref 12943)"  The error link takes me to the miscellaneous info section, and to clear it I have to complete the "designated individuals information, if the partnership representative is an entity".  Speaking with the Lacerte help desk, this error has already been reported and they are in the process of addressing.  Is this something that would create issues with the return should I file with this section completed, even though it is N/A?

I had this same problem but finally got it figured out.  I had to put the Individual's name in the primary contact field at the top of the Client Info screen and delete the Partnership Rep Partner # in the same screen.

Thank you. Your fix worked for me as well.
