The only explanation Ive ever seen on the 5329 is the waiver right below Line 52...but thats for when someone forgets to take an RMD, I dont think Line 2 is involved with that.

Try printing a preview of the return, and look at title of explanation statement. Then click on where do I enter (put that title). Hope that works for you. What letter did you use for the exception. Another thought you may have clicked on the letter icon next to the amount of the exception, so try clicking on that icon
