If my 1099 has an EIN that is also a social security number, how do I enter it as a SS? My only option was EIN format and its saying it's invalid.

The default is to enter the EIN in the EIN format instead of as a Social Security Number.  However, on the 1099-MISC input screen, there is an option to change the format.  The Button to do so is located underneath the box where you would type the number in EIN format.

I can only access it via "fixing my federal return."  I have paid already, so I can't start over.  Any suggestions?
