File is not Picking eventhough file naming convention is there as *XXXXXX*

Hi Experts,

I would like to know the exact route cause of why PI behaves like this?

ISSUE:-

I am doing SYNC Scenario FILE -- RFC -- FILE using Integrated Configuration nothing but Advance Adapter Engine concept.

I kept file naming convention to be picking in the sender File adapter as

*ConsumerHours.xml*

Now I am keeping file with file name in FTP as given below:-

20100409_121403_000001929023_XXXXX_ConsumerHours.xml

But It is not picking the above file I tried and tried so many times finally I have taken one Old success file from Source Team and Compared both XML files using XML Comparison Tool and I found 3 Reasons:- which I wondered It Picks the below Success File

The_3 Differences are:-_

Success File Contains:-

a) <?xml version="1.0" ?>

but old one contains::

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>

MY QUESTION:-

I agree there is encoding issue but how can it validation takes place before coming into PI and that to while picking the File at FTP Location?

b) Success File Contains:-

<CUSTOM_FIELD ID="PRODUCED_QUANTITY">

Failure File Contains:

<CUSTOM_FIELD ID="PRODUCT_QUANTITY">

MY QUESTION:-

I agree there is TAG issue but how can it validation takes place before coming into PI and that to while picking the File at FTP Location?

c) File Naming conventions:-

FOR Failure File Contains:20100409_121403_000001929023_XXXXX_ConsumerHours.xml

FOR Success File Contains:091023235952188_XXXXX_ConsumerHours.xml

MY QUESTION:-

Is there any restriction in keeping FIle name length for placing into the FTP Location. Even though I kept ConsumerHours.xml I donot know why it is not picking the File ?

Kindly let me know if you have any solution on this I mean exact Route Cause:

Regards:
