Qualified Dividends are only and always a portion or all of the Regular Dividends reported in 1a.  Qualified dividends can be less than or equal to the 1a amount but never more then that.  If the issuer is trying to tell you that the only dividends you received were qualified for capital gains treatment, you would have to fill in that same amount in 1a to make the form correct.

On a 1099Div, box 1b is only the part (or all) of box 1a that is qualified.  You need the same amount or more in box 1a.
