You need to enter an amount in box 6a (Actual amount of eligible dividends) or box 6b (Actual amount of ordinary dividends) on the RL-15 page, since you entered an amount in box 6a.1, 6a.2, 6a.3, 6b.1, 6b.2 and/or 6b.3 in the bottom section of the page. Make sure you entered all the amounts shown on the RL-15 slip. [error code: RQ195]

To correct the error, on the RL-15 page in the tax software, enter an amount in either box 6a (Actual amount of eligible dividends) or box 6b (Actual amount of ordinary dividends) as shown on your paper RL-15 slip, if you entered an amount in any of the following boxes:
