Self-employment Going to "Edit" >> screens are empty - as if I had not entered any information - but I have! Why is this happening?

I cannot access information entered yesterday.  Amount of (loss) shows on summary page so I know the information is there, but I can't access it.  TT seems to want to create another company when  I do this.  All I want to do is edit existing information.

When you choose EDIT you get to the beginning of the Self employment form where your information was originally entered.   In order to EDIT any of the information you need to scroll ("Continue" through each screen within that form to get to the page you want to edit your information.   I agree that it does look like the program wants you to create another company but you really are on the same business return.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
