How remove "check this entry: foreign source amount must be entered box 6d"? $42 foreign taxes does not require form 1116! In box 6 b, TT shows "copy 1" and wants 6d info

I had same amt foreign taxes last year and used TT and don't see a form 1116 complete.  Also, I did not encounter this TT error last year. Why does box 6 say "copy 1" if no form 1116 required or completed and I need amount for 6d. Where do I find the amount for 6d? It won't let me leave it blank.

If there is an entry in 1099-DIV box 6TurboTax will immediately and incorrectly require an entry in box 6d and will mark it as an error until an amount is entered.  Box 6d is “the foreign source amount included in dividends.” 

If Form 1116 is filled out, there is a screen to input that amount which TurboTax will insert into box 6d and clear the error. 

If Form 1116 is not filled out because the user elects to use the exemption or the deduction, then bring up the 1099-DIV worksheet and type a zero into box 6d to remove the error.
