I need get the data from file. Because my source information coming from file. My File naming conventions is "KFC_REPORT_161019862000.txt". Whenever i am getting the new file, file name will be changed. How can i proceed with file mask like "KFC_REPORT_**********.txt"
Can you help us to proceed further ?

There is no wildcard for a file name, it will not find the file for processing without the exact name
Thank you for using Focal Point!

You can use wildcards when mapping a MAS to flat files. Just remember that you will read all the files that match the pattern, so you will need to move the file when you have finished reading it. The GUI will walk you through how to do it, but below is the relevant components of the MAS and ACX
FILENAME=ALLORDERS, SUFFIX=DFIX ,
VARIABLE NAME=&&FL_DIRECTORY, PROMPT='Application directory name to poll for files', DEFAULT='C:\iDM\8201m\ibi\apps\infiles', $
VARIABLE NAME=&&FL_NAME, PROMPT='File name pattern', USAGE=A80, DEFAULT='orders_*', $
VARIABLE NAME=&&FL_EXTENSION, PROMPT='Data File Extension', USAGE=A80, DEFAULT='ftm', $
VARIABLE NAME=&&FL_CONNECTION, PROMPT='Connection to local or remote data files location', DEFAULT='<local>', $
