Hi,

I am using File Listener to get some csv files at a particular folder location and load those to a target table.
It is successful and i use SOURCE_FILE_NAME as an INSTANCE to get the source file name in the target table.
So when i use this dataflow in my process flow,how can i grab the source file name.?
I need to include the source file name in a procedure to store the log regarding each dataflow.
Can i grab the SOURCE_FILE name out of data_flow.?

After the data flow completes you can have a stored procedure that reads that column out of the target table, hold the results and then do a -READFILE of the hold file into a variable and then reference the variable in your procedure.


TABLE FILE TARGET_TABLE
PRINT SOURCE_FILE_NAME
WHERE RECORDLIMIT EQ 1
ON TABLE HOLD AS SOURCE_FILE_NAME FORMAT ALPHA
END
-RUN
-READFILE SOURCE_FILE
-RUN
-SET &&SOURCE_FILE_NAME = &SOURCE_FILE_NAME;


Using a global variable so it will be available in your subsequent procedure.


Thank you for using Focal Point!
