You find the worksheet in the instructions to Form 8829. Then you take the results and enter into Lacerte where the diagnostic tells you to. It's a pain in the neck.

My notes say the worksheet looks like this:

Form 8829 Line 11 Worksheet 
Line 1 Unlimited State Taxes  
Line 2 RE Tax on HO  
Line 3 any other RE Tax 
Line 4 Psnl Prop Tax 
Line 5 = sum of 1-4 
Line 6 = 5 x HO % 
Line 7 = 2 - 6 
Line 8 = 5 - 6 
Line 9 = 10,000 - 8 
Line 10 = smaller of 6 or 9 Carry to Line 11 of Form 8829 
Line 11 = 6 - 10 Carry to Line 17 of Form 8829

Phoebe - Isn't Line 6 = 2 x HO % (not Line 5 which is total SALT)?

Good catch - yes, that's a typo on Line 6.

Instructing users of a computer program for preparing tax returns that a manual worksheet is required is not a solution!  It is just one more shortcoming of the program.
