I have designed a flow manually with "Product01" as my source table to load into "Product_new" as my target. I also create a schedule to run this flow daily. Each day will create new table name "ProductXX"(where "XX" would be a counter) so my second day would be "Product02" to append into "Product_new" . is there a way to schedule this flow via source's name change dynamically/sequentially?This message has been edited.

Yes this should be possible, you will need to run a DM Stored Procedure prior to the load that will set a &variable with the source table name that will be referenced in the productxx access file in the TABLENAME section. So you only need a single master file for the source file and the TABLENAME portion of the access file will be dynamic based on the &variable, You will need to keep the counter in another table that you increment and then look it up to set the &variable in the DM stored procedure. Hope that makes sense...
Thank you for using Focal Point!
