I am getting the message "Input string is incorrect format" on this line:
CCBACHNUMB = part;

Both fields are strings. Do I need to reference an array value some how?
Please see complete code.
private void btnImport_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            string path = InputFilename;
            /* string content = File.ReadAllText(path); */

            int rc = 0;
            int fc = 0;
            foreach (string line in File.ReadAllLines(path))
            {
                rc++;
                string[] parts = line.Split('|');
                foreach (string part in parts)
                {
                    fc++;
                    switch (fc)
                    {
                        case 2:
                            CCBACHNUMB = part;
                            break;
                        case 4:
                            CCLNITMSEQ = Convert.ToInt32(part);

                            break;
                        default:
                            Console.WriteLine("Default case");
                            break;
                    }
 
                    
                }
                fc = 0;
            }
