Background doesn't exist

I typed in a copy-pasted a background from the art catalog, and it says that doesn’t exist. I tried typing it in manually, adding EXT. and - DAY, and it says it’s still wrong. The scene before its is a custom background, which hasn’t been approved yet. Could that be the problem? Here’s the code for the background:

INT. BED #this is my custom background which hasn’t been approved yet
#I have a custom overlay that has been approved
#There is dialog in between here.

ADMINISTRATION BUILDING - DAY #I copied this exactly from the art catalog

EXT. ADMINISTRATION BUILDING - DAY #I tried to put the EXT. in front of it because i thought that would fix it

Here is the actual code:
INT. BED
@zoom on 150 486 to 197% in 0
@overlay SHEETS create
@overlay SHEETS opacity 1
@overlay SHEETS shifts to 64 152
@overlay SHEETS scales to 1.292 1.292
@ALEX spot 1.816 161 -186
@ALEX changes into alexpjs
@ALEX faces right
@ALEX is idle
@pause for a beat

FILTER: Black and White

@set hsl 0 -100 0 no_colorize with blendMode NORMAL to 100%
@transition fade out

Your filter will be enabled for every scene after this line

To turn off the filter, use “@reset hsl” or “@reset hsl in [# of seconds]”

EXT. ADMINISTRATION BUILDING - DAY
@overlay SHEETS clear
@zoom reset
@ALEX changes into alex1
@TAYLOR changes into taylor1
@ALEX stands screen left
@ALEX faces right
@TAYLOR stands screen right
@TAYLOR faces left
@transition fade in
