Temporary file name / ftp


9. Under Write Mode, specify whether the target file is to be written Directly to the specified directory.

○ If an additional step is to be added using a temporary file, choose Use Temporary File.

○ You can specify a naming scheme for the temporary file under Temporary File Name Scheme.

This scheme is used to determine the prefix and extension of the temporary file; to ensure a unique file name, a time stamp is also added to the name during processing.


The scheme xitemp.tmp, for example, results in the file name xitemp<timestamp>.tmp.

Is there any way to avoid the adding of the timestamp? i only have a limited number of allowed characters in the filename (10 + 3)

Any idea?
