Error Statement Data File Name is Invalid when Exporting out Fund Statement

When exporting out a fund statement the error, "Statement Data File Name is Invalid". This error occurs for clients on HostNet who are still using the local N drive for their export files rather than the shared S drive on HostNet. The local mapped N drive is a remnant from when FIMS was self-hosted on the client's own server. When client's move to HostNet typically the S drive on HostNet is used going forward.
If you are hosted on HostNet now but were previously self-hosted and still use your local N mapped drive for your exports, the issue is caused by HostNet not being able to see the mapped N drive. Typically most customers using HostNet will have converted over to using the shared S HostNet drive for merges, but some customers keep the old N mapped drive to their old self-hosted server, which is fine, you just have to give HostNet permission to the drive:

You may see this in your export setup to export out to the N drive, which is fine to use this way ( \\client\n$\[PATH]). You will notice the error message, "Statement Data File Name is Invalid" if HostNet does not have permission to the N drive. This will be evidenced by clicking the Browse button, if the N drive does not show in the list, that means that HostNet does not have permission to the N drive:

To fix that, log into HostNet, and click on My Files. You will see a prompt to open it which you will click on, you will also see a series of boxes popping up to allow all access, click on any boxes that come up and allow full access and when you go back to the export and re-try the error should be gone. Also, you will note if you click on the Browse button in the export window the N drive should now be visible. You may have to do this each time when logging into HostNet to grant permission.
