    Just type in the fieldname that should carry the filename in your output row, e.g. "filename".
    So long, and thanks for all the fish.

    Can we define multiple fields here? & Why we are using it?
    Thanks,

    You are supposed to give a single fieldname.
    I use this feature when reading multiple files with the same step, so I can tell later from which file the rows came from.
    Don't know why you would use it.

    I don't see how your other thread is related to this one.
    If you need further advice in your other thread, please, ask there or open a new thread.
    So long, and thanks for all the fish.
