File List size limit

Hi All,

I'm trying to limit how many files get pulled into a File List at once, but haven't been able to do so. For example, if I am looking in a folder that contains 1000 files, but I only want my task to select the first 100 of these files to put into the file list before moving on to the next task, is there a way to do this (assuming that filters are irrelevant for this particular task)? Thanks in advance for any help.

The File List filter goes though and grabs a full list of all files on the Source, then filters based on filtering needs. Your final File List is what meets the filtering criteria.

Currently, we do not have a way to "limit" to the first x files of that selection.

You can however, manipulate that file list to process only the files you want to work with. Ie ...

For-each counter.
For I eq 1 to 100
Variable decrement

Any options for looping through that file list and only working with the first x value needed.
