1040X when 1040 was not prepared by me

I need to prepare a 1040X for a new client for 2018 and 2019.  I did not prepare either original return.  I had found articles on this before, but now cannot find them.

Thank you!

You need to recreate the return exactly the same as the original....then open the 1040X and input the year at the top, if a state is involved, go to the state return and activate the amended form for that state as well...then go back and make the changes that youre amending for.

This should put the original figures in the original column, and the corrected figures in the corrected column of the 1040X
