Trouble with a lead conversion - Error: "ConvertLead failed. First exception on row...

I'm having trouble with a custom lead conversion, and I keep getting this error: "ConvertLead failed. First exception on row 0; first error: REQUIRED_FIELD_MISSING, accountId must be specified if contactId is not null:"

Would love some help!

If you are supplying the ContactId, then you must also supply the AccountId.

Thanks Norm! The way we're doing the lead process it should create a Contact and an Account upon conversion. In the lead I'm trying to convert, I have both the Contact and the Account fields complete. Any idea where I'm going wrong?

Well the error message says you don't have an AccountId specified. Have you verified through a system.debug() statement?
