Dates in filenames.

Hello all,

Hope all is well in your BW world. I have an issue and I haven't been able to find any real solution online. I'm using an infospoke to extract data from an ODS object into a flat file on the BW server. During the infospoke setup, there is a field that says "Flat File Name". However, I want the name to be dynamic by date. Anyone have any suggestions on how to make the filename dynamic by date?

Thanks,

Jay

    Hi,

    normally you can do this by using a logical filename. Check out transaction FILE for this.

      Thanks for all your help. I found an excellent white paper to go with it. Below is the white paper and link to get to it.
