File Sender Adapter

Hi,

    

     I am working on File to IDoc Scenario.

The file may consists of 60 to 70 records. When i test my scenario, the file adapter processes only 20 to 30 records.

How should i proceed further?

Hi Deepthi,

Based on your symptoms, it looks like PI starts processing the file before it is completely written by the sender system. This can be avoided in a few ways, only to name:

1. The sender system can create the file under temporary name, and rename the file (to match PI filename mask) after it is completely written.

2. Same as above, but instead of renaming the file, change the "Read-Only" attribute.

3. If you are using NFS transfer protocol, you can also use the attribute "Msecs to Wait Before Modification Check", as described in Q2 of the Wiki below:
