Pro Series Basic W-4- is it working properly

Level 1

Would you show how the Pro Series Basic program handles the w-4 for a married couple with a child credit of 2,000 and itemized deductions being 4,000 more than the standard deduction.

1. I get an error that asks for allowances to be entered. I thought allowances were no longer used and cannot find where to enter that anyway to make the error go away.

2. It appears to me that Pro Series Basic enters the full 2,000 child credit on both w-4's, as well as the full amount over the standard deduction on both w-4's. I thought IRS directions were to enter this type data on only one spouse's w-4, or at least put half of each on the w-4, not the full amount on each's w-4.
