Problem exporting writable layers from Illustrator into Photoshop

I'm trying to export my Illustrator file into Photoshop, with full writeable layers so I can make corrections in the Photoshop file layers. Upon exporting, the file does not allow me to check the box 'Write Layers' - it's grayed out. 

 

Things I've already done (following advise from other community messages)

- Ungrouped all

- Gone to layers dropdown and selected 'release to layers (sequence)'

- Used the attributes to uncheck the 'overprint fill' box 

 

But nothing is working! I would really appreciate any advice or support on this issue ASAP.

Are you exporting to the same color mode your document is set up?

Are the layers main layers? They need to be.
