Runtime error '13' (when editing a config file)


If you receive a "Runtime error 13 - Type mismatch" when editing a config file from within the program, it is probably because the file is set to "read only" in your operating system.

Solution: Browse to the folder containing the file and right-click the filename to view the "Properties" (Windows) or "Get Info" (Mac). The "Read-only" attribute should be UN-checked, like this:

Also, you can edit config files directly by navigating to the file on your computer and opening it with any text editor (save it in "plain text" mode). You don’t have to edit the file from within Statement Converter.
