Where do I put multiple middle names?

I have a relative, Susan Elizabeth Hankison Swick.  I put both middle names into the middle name slot.  The error list shows her with a 511.  Is there another place to put extra middle names or should I just mark the 511 as a false error?

You are getting 511 error because of name Hankison. If you are sure it is spelled corectlly, just mark it as false error.

I just place them all on the Middle Name line, I hope I have been doing that right.

Do just separate them with a space or a comma?
Not with a comma, for then you will create a new error:
Error_512 separator in name
A space.

I had that with 2 of my relatives and just put them in the middle name with a space West-8908

Just ignore the "error" - the computer program doesn't understand that it is common practice to use an ancestors surname as a middle name.

Actually it does for almost 1 month already. Any name, that appears as lastname is not shown as an error.
