State return ca

Anyone help with this.  Before it lets me finalize state return keeps telling me to taxpayer ssn shouldNot be entered directly on California information worksheet for electronic filing you must complete the federal personal information worksheet. What does that mean?

All of your personal information should be entered at the beginning of your return in the federal section. That information is then transferred to the state return. Therefore, you should not enter it again on the state return.

@KatrinaB48  thank you well I went ahead and submitted the federal e file and opted to send the state by mail.  Do you foresee a problem with that.  It would not correct even though I tried reentering it on the federal over and over

No there should not be a problem with your filing either on the federal or state level.
