Instructions from linked page

Open the qif file in Notepad and add the following four lines at the very 
beginning of the file: 

!Account 
NMyAccount 
Txxxx 

substituting the exact Quicken name of the account you want to import to for "MyAccount";

and substituting from the following list for "xxxx":
1.) "Bank" for checking or savings accounts 
2.) "CCard" for credit card accounts 
3.) "Invst" for investment accounts 

"Save" the qif file. 

"...add the following four lines..."
WHAT four lines? It would help if the lines were formatted as lines, rather than one string.

I followed the link to the cited page, but it appears it now opens the general forum for searching.
