Form 8949 for grantor trusts

Level 1

I just noticed in the Form 8949 instructions, under "What's New" it says "Estates and trusts. Both grantor and non-grantor trusts must use Form 8949."  When I try to prepare a Form 8949 for a grantor trust, Proseries is carrying it to page 1 of the 1041, and of course generating an error. Has anyone else come across this and have a solution?

Don't complete it for the 1041.

Attach a statement to the grantor letter with all the pertinent info. The Grantor will put on the 8949 on their 1040.
