Flat file targets with static file names

Flat file targets with static file names

If you create a flat file target at run time, you can specify a static file name. The file name can include a time stamp that indicates when the file was created.
To specify a static file name, in the
Target Object
dialog box, enter the file name in the
Static File Name
field. To include a time stamp, enable
Handle Special Characters
and add the time stamp characters to the file name. For example, the file name MyTarget_%d-%m.csv includes the day and month in which the mapping ran.
The following image shows the
Target Object
dialog box:
The image shows the Target Object dialog box for a flat file target. The "Create New at Runtime" option is selected and the "Use a Dynamic File Name" check box is not checked. Because a dynamic file name is not selected, the Static File Name field appears at the bottom of the dialog box. The name "MyTarget.csv" is entered in the Static File Name field.
If you do not include a time stamp, the
mapping
task creates the target file the first time the task runs and overwrites the file during subsequent runs.
If you append a time stamp to the target file name, the
mapping
task writes data to a new file when the time stamp changes. For example, you enable special character handling, enter static file name MyTarget_%d-%m.csv, and run the mapping task on January 15 and January 16. The
mapping
task creates the target files MyTarget_15-01.csv and MyTarget_16-01.csv.
