Having trouble changing name on IMDB

I was asked to correct the name of Halina Abramowicz (it is listed as Halina Abramowitz), but when I tried to submit changes I get this error:

This correction has been rejected. You need to correct this correction before it will be accepted.
  • This correction has no effect.
    The corrected name is identical to the original name and has been rejected as a result.
Just to confirm, when the list of similar names comes up - am I meant to check the box that has her current, misspelled name or press the box that says add new person. I've been clicking the box that has her current, mispelled name.

Thanks for your help,
I'm hella confused.

This is a common problem due to the confusing way the software handles name corrections.

Instead of selecting the choice for her name as it is currently spelled, go to the end of the list and instead select "This is a different person not currently listed - create 'Abramowicz, Halina'." Although it may not look right, that is the way to accomplish what you are trying to do.

Good luck!
