On my 1099-B from Morgan Stanley, the "Cost or Other Basis" (Box 1e) shows "NOT ON FILE." What do I enter into TurboTax where it asks for a number in this field?

This box in TurboTax is highlighted red and specifically asks for a number.  I can't enter "NOT ON FILE."  I can't leave it blank and proceed.
