Using a List File

Using a List File

To use multiple source files in a workflow, you create a file containing the names and directories of each source file you want to use. This file is referred to as a file list.
Create the file list in an editor and save it as a text file. For example, you can create a file list with any text editor and then save it as an ASCII file.
Use the following rules and guidelines when you create a file list:
  • Each file in the list must use the user-defined code page configured in the source definition.
  • Each file in the list must share the same file properties as configured in the source definition or as entered for the source instance in the session property sheet.
  • Enter one file name or one path and file name on a line. If you do not specify a path for a file, the Integration Service assumes the file is in the same directory as the file list.
The following example shows a valid file list. The western_trans.dat file is saved in the same directory as the file list.
western_trans.dat
d:\data\eastern_trans.dat
e:\data\midwest_trans.dat
f:\data\canada_trans.dat
