If you have merged two projects you now have a project with two data sets,
the data set from the original project and the data set from the merged
project. You are probably trying to merge an individual from one data set
with an individual from the other data set. This you cannot do. You must
merge the data sets and then merge individuals who are in the same data
set. To merge data sets look under File>Data Set Manager....
