File Lists

File Lists

You can create a connection to a group of flat files, mainframe flat files, or XML files.
Before you create a connection to a group of files, you must create a file that lists the names of all mainframe flat files, or XML files in the group. If the file contains a list of files, you must create a line feed after the last filename in the list.
When you create the connection, you specify the name and location of the file that contains the list of files.
