Forces actual expenses instead of standard mileage deduction

Totally frustrated here.  I am a minister and I have had 3200 miles in mileage this year.  I filled out my schedule C and all of the auto expenses, but it refuses to allow me to take the standard mileage deduction, instead forcing the actual expenses to schedule C.  Can anyone make a suggestion here?  Maybe its a bug or maybe there is some obscure reason for this buty this represents a lot of miles for me.

Re: Forces actual expenses instead of standard mileage deduction

I found my mistake.  I mistyped the date of beginning service in the form to be 2017, and the software would no recognize it.  That fixed it works fine.
