Start with checking the transmission fluid level, check it with the engine running.

Hi there, I checked the transmission oil with the car running it looks fine, I also cheked the shifter cable linkage from the bottom of the car all the way to shifter handle. Still I can't get the gear into drive. Could it be the transmission computer or the diffrential. Thank you and happy holidays

It could be a bad "A" pack in the transmission, it could be a hundred other things as well. It is a practical impossibility to say from cyberspace what it is for sure.
