Thread: How is "Add filenames to result" supposed to work?

    Default How is "Add filenames to result" supposed to work?

    Hello,

    I'm using 3.2-stable.

    How is the new "Add filenames to result" option in the Text and XML output step supposed to work? Basically, I want to generate a Text/XML file from a filtered result set and then use the generated file name in the next step, an email component, to send the (zipped) file to a recipient.

    Any ideas how to send in a previous step generated file via email?

    the filenames get added to the a list, which is accessible from the job executing the transformation.

    Hi!

    Thanks for that! Ok, I then have an email job entry. In what file category (General, Log, ...) falls the generated XML/Text file from an email job entry POV then?

    Thanks again!

    And how do I send the email only, if there is a file name in the result? I simply only want to send the email in the job if the file has been created from the transformation. If it hasn't been created, the email should not be sent.

    Thanks!
