How to force check mark in Credit for Other Dependents

Level 2

CLient's dependent (child) does not have social security and is not a US citizen.  We applied for ITIN number and we filed a paper tax return with the W7.  

IRS rejected the W7 stating that there should be a checkmark on 'Credit for Other Deps' on 1040 (in dependent section).   It seems we can not override that field and would like to know how can I put a check mark there.  Also, will it calculate the $500 credit for the kid?

Thank you in advance

Since it is a paper return, how about using a pen?

Blue or black ink? 😜

Armpit sniffer. Yup, checked out the help wanted ads and found the job. With my nose, how can I go wrong?
