When I run this workflow on desktop designer it works just fine.  However when I attempt to run it from Gallery I get the following error. I'm sure there is something missing.  Please help.

Hi @larryalx, can you confirm if your File Browse interface tool is connecting to an Input tool? If yes, can you provide us a screenshot of the configuration you have in it? Judging by the message it looks like you are reading one file format, while the Input tool is expecting another.

I was able to fix the issue by setting the file specification to "(*.txt)|*.txt". Thanks to Christian Lopez-Farnes got me on the right track.  I appreciate you looking into it also.
