Why won’t it let me enter in the control number box for my W-2

A control number on your W-2 is not required by the IRS; it's for the convenience of your employer.

 

If you can, try to go to the W-2 input screen and just delete whatever entry is in the control number field.

 

Otherwise please see this TurboTax FAQ for what to do when there is no valid control number on your W-2.
