TT will not accept ANY numeric input. Under the "Deductions and Credits" - ANY numeric amount you try to enter for 2007 is not accepted. This applies only to entries for previous 2006 lenders, property tax, etc. - where it shows the 2006 amount on the left and the 2007 entry box on the right. The input field is highlighted - it refuses to accept input. Again, this is only for entries where there are 2006 values shown on the left. New entries - where there were no 2006 entries can be input without issue.

I've reported this issue to TT - they don't have an answer yet.

Any ideas?

    More details needed. Exactly which form or worksheet are you seeing the problem?

    Thanks for clearing that up. I never use the easy step, only deal directly with forms (CMD+T), so I didn't see the "Deductions and Credits" item. Since I don't own a home, there's no way for me to go through those steps for prior years. You might try using the forms directly and see what transpires.

    Are you saying that you cannot enter amounts in the 2006 or 2007 column? If it's the 2006 column, you should not be able to do that since these are historical amounts and are locked. If it's 2007 amounts, then I have never heard of this issue. It's so strange that the only thing I can suggest is to trash the existing version and reinstall and then update.

    Wish I could be more helpful, but this one is a one-of-a-kind.

    Ah! The Supporting Details form, which pops up when you double-click on the item. Thanks for the feedback. Good computing.
