Hi Jerry,
That error message means that there are quotation marks (" ") in a field in your Reckon accounting software that needs to be removed. So for example, the most common we've come across is quotation marks being used in addresses or names.
Once you've corrected this, create a new STP file from your accounting software and submit via GovConnect.
