Welcome to the forum.
Instead of leaving a gap in the Video, what happens if you insert Black Video (created with the New Icon in the Project Panel)?
Note that gaps can cause all sorts of issues later on, and are not advised.
That works thank you. And I will stay away from gaps in the future.

I have seen Timelines with 100's of gaps NOT produce any errors, and Timelines with a single, 1-Frame gap kill Export/Transcode. Cannot even imagine why some seem to be easily overlooked, and some are "death."
Black Video is very, very useful.
I also start each Sequence with about 02 sec. of Black Video, and end each with the same, using Dip-to-Black to lead in and fade out. This does a few extra things for me. At the beginning, it gives a DVD player (the higher-end units seem to really need this more than lower-end ones) time to lock in on the Video and Audio, so no Frames, or Audio are "missed." At the end, it means that in my DVD, or BD, the Audio will end before the Video, so there is never an issue of the Audio Duration exceeding the Video's Duration. Because of differing block sizes between Video and some Audio, the Audio stream can be slightly longer, causing problems. Also, there is an aesthetic plus - when the laser has to be moved about, there can be a black "flash." If this happens after my Dip-to-Black, during the otherwise few seconds of black, the viewer will never see the black "flash." It's hidden in the other black!
When setting up my Projects, the first thing that I do, after creating my normal Bins, is to do Black Video. I just go with whatever my default Duration is, and then get that Black Video into the Source Monitor, where I Trim to 02 sec., and then Rename that to 02 sec Black Video. I use that dozens of time.
