how do I itemize income tax deductions for California when I do not itemize for federal?

Nemo
Level 1

I am doing a return for California residents who do not have enough itemized deductions for 2020 federal income tax purposes, but do have enough itemized deductions for 2020 California income tax purposes. How do I get the Pro Series Basic software to enter itemized deductions for California instead of the California standard deduction? I entered the itemized deductions on the federal worksheet. I couldn't find a California itemized deductions worksheet. Thank you for any help with this situation.

The federal Sch A will get attached to the CA return, you should also see any adjustments  to  itemized deductions on the 540 Schedule CA, Side 2.
