I'm trying to merge Berning-615 into Berning-7 and all the information is correct but when I go to "Confirm Merge" a red banner appears at the top that tells me to fix invalid data but all it says is "Permission Denied". I'm not sure what that means or how else to merge the two profiles.

It could be that the privacy setting of one of the dupes is set such that you cannot edit it.

Berning-7 is an open profile managed by another WikiTree Member. Berning-615 has a different profile manager than Berning and also has a private with family tree setting. The merge needs to be approved by the two profile managers before they can be merged or the merge request will go into default in 30 days and then can be merged.

Even with approval, the merge can only be completed by someone on the Trusted List for the profile that is Private with a Public Family Tree.
