I am new to Latex and trying to add a simple list of other qualifications to my CV, but I keep getting this error.

Here is my code for other qualifications:

%   OTHER QUALIFICATIONS SECTION
%----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

\section{other qualifications}

\begin{entrylist}
%------------------------------------------------
\entry
{MS Office:}
MS Word – Editing
MS Excel – Graphs, Formulas, Tables
MS PowerPoint\newline
\entry
{CRM – Exai}\newline
\entry
{DaPulse} – Project Management\newline
\entry
{HTML} comprehension\newline
\entry
{WIX} – Creating and Editing Website Content
{\vspace{-0.3cm}}
%------------------------------------------------
\end{entrylist}

Where do I put the brackets in order to make a list?

    Please edit your question so that it includes a complete example document that reproduces the problem. Without this (and so lacking information about the document class, macros you have defined, packages you use, etc.) it may be difficult for anyone to help you. – Ian Thompson Nov 8 '17 at 13:39

You are doing it wrong. A cventry takes four mandatory arguments. It is designed to take a year, and a title and a description.

What i think you are looking for, is just a small and simple table. Keep it simple, don't let a template decide what you want to do.

The list as defined by the template is in the middle, a simple table with the information you want to give is at the bottom. The top of the image shows the general design of the template.
