[Python Glasgow] How to write lines that start with TRAN to another output file

Hi Heidi,

Perhaps check your indentation, the code under the 'if' does not look indented correctly on my phone.  Also, assumption is that the p.txt file has some content where lines start with TRAN and the file/directory permissions are correct.

I tried the code and works fine for me
