How can I enter a payer's TIN on form 1099-MISC?

On the error screen I  need to move the number shown as EIN to TIN.  The screen will not allow me to do this. How do I make this correction?

You will need to go back to the 1099-MISC and edit it.  You can select the format you need to use.   Right now, you have it set to EIN, but you can change it to SSN (TIN).  

If you are in a review, you may have to leave the review and go back to the step-by-step interview to edit the 1099-MISC.

How do we change the EIN to TIN?  At the review It says that the number is not valid for SSN type.  What should I do?
