wait_for_file() not working for certain file names
Data Services Version: 22.214.171.124
OS: Windows Server 2003.
I'm using wait_for_file to poll for files in a certain directory. I've used this in the past for other projects and never had an issue until now.
What seems to be happening is with certain file names, wait_for_file is returning a 1 (meaning at least one file found), however the file list is coming back as blank.
If I put a file name called cs.p.P110113CN.b.110114 in the directory, I get a blank return file list.
If I then rename this to 110114, it works fine.
Here's the code I'm using:
wait_for_file($GV_InputDirectory || '*',0,0,1,$GV_InputFileName);
Any ideas why this might be happening? Renaming the file isn't really an option as it's a standard format that we've used for years.
