Efile error code 139270

Good evening folks - just tried to efile some returns and one came back with an odd error. Error code 139270 “An invalid character(s) is in the free format area. Review the free format entires and contact your software developer if you need assistance.” Of course it was 6:30 when I got this message, so I am wondering if any of my most helpful peers have seen this free format area, or if I am unicron hunting until the morning?

Without any info in front of me, I’ll guess that line 9270 is negative,and CRA doesn’t allow it. Alternately, await an official answer from the team tomorrow.

Thanks Cameron - without any information in front of you, you still solved my problem. I can’t say I would have thought to look there last night:) Thanks again!
