Unfortunately, Dawn, as this is a radio button, you need to check another option to make the "no middle name" go. Once one of the options is checked, it is not possible to go back to none of the opions checked.

If there is a middle name entered and none of the three options is checked, you're fine (but then you wouldn't get the error).

If the "no middle name" option is checked, but there is a middle name, you need to choose either "certain" or "uncertain" to remove "no middle name".

Hi Dawn

Check where a middle name may have been entered and see under that (on the edit page) if no middle name is still checked... (that would be one example of the error).

If all else fails, can you share the profile ID that the suggestion/error is attached to so we could take a look!
