Thank you very much for your suggestions. I tried running your Python program but got an IOError with a permission problem, but whilst trying to sort that out, I discovered what my problem was! The transaction reminders that weren’t working were associated with a higher level ‘Banks’ rather than the individual bank account. I’m not sure why it would do this (I realise user error is most probable but even still perhaps it should allow a higher level association?) but don’t really care anyway as it works now. Thanks for all your help.
Hi. Glad you’ve got it fixed. Yes it’s a common problem to have the wrong account selected. If you wouldn’t mind, could you send me a screenshot of my script failing (ie the error information) and also what system (windows/Mac), version and MD version; so I can look at the script error?
I’m on a Mac and not as good on it as I used to be on Windows! I used to be a mainframe systems programmer when I was working so not completely daft but I haven’t quite worked out all the bits that are different on a Mac. I think part of the problem is that the Mac is more user friendly so you don’t really need to. But that doesn’t help when something goes wrong
Hi, no problem. Looking at the code I think you downloaded version 1 or 2 - rather than v3… The latest code (v3) avoids the user having to edit the script to enter the folder which I think is where the error lies (I suspect a problem with the path)…. For reference, v3 attached.
Hi Teresa, I think we found the same issue on another user's Windows machine on another script. Its a form of Windows folder protection kicking in and whilst you have full access to the directory, it's not letting 'unknown' programs write to it. I changed the java function and it seemed to resolve the issue. I have updated this script with this change too. It also now displays the reminders, and allows edits (optional), before writing the file. Would be great if you could try it and confirm it resolves the IO Permission error when writing the file? Many thanks
