adding a date to the name of an output file

Postby mark_a_hall » Fri Mar 15, 2013 11:06 am

Is there an easy way to add the date to the name of an output file. I am pulling data from the IBM i and writing it to the ifs as a CSV file (also ftp'ing it somewhere else).

There are several ways to do this ... try something like this:

Code: Select all
<project name="Date Test" mainModule="Main" version="2.0">
   <module name="Main">

      <createWorkspace version="1.0" />

      <timestamp version="1.0">
         <format outputVariable="DateStamp" pattern="yyyyMMdd.HHmmss" />

<!-- Need to create the SQL Rowset of Data "MyRowset" here -->

      <writeCSV label="Create CSV File" inputRowSetVariable="${MyRowset}" outputFile="MyFile.csv.${DateStamp}" whenFileExists="overwrite" outputFileVariable="MyCSVFile" version="1.0" />

      <sftp label="Connect to Server" resourceId="Test SFTP" version="1.0">
         <put label="Push CSV File to Server" sourceFilesVariable="${MyCSVFile}" destinationDir="/" />

      <deleteWorkspace version="1.0" />
