When receiving this rejection, verify there are not overrides on Schedule E by pressing CTRL+D to access the Federal diagnostics window.  If there's an Overrides tab, then there are overrides within the return.  If there are overrides on Schedule E, you'll need to remove the overrides and revert to the calculated data by placing your cursor in the field containing the override, and choosing Edit > Overrides > Delete Override.  Once your Schedule E is completed, you can recreate and resubmit the electronic file.
