Conversion XML-Text atom

Hi all

I have developed a scenario step which reads txt files from a directory and generates journal vouchers based on the data in the files. This is made using the file inbound and specifying a control document for mapping values in the file to xml.

I now want to rewrite this step to use void inbound and read the files in the processing flow of the scenario. The reason for this is that i want to copy the file to a backup folder when it is succesfully imported. Ref sample.000 in B1IF.

My question is now; how can I use my Format Control Document when I read the files in a GetFile atom in the processing flow? I see there is an atom where you can do txt2xml conversion and vice versa, and I guess this should give me the possibility to use my Format Control Document, but there is no documentation on how the preciding transformation atom should look.

Have any of you got any excperience using this atom and can give me some hints on how to use it?

Best regards

Bengt Skrettingland

    Hi Bengt,

    the GetFile atom does not (yet) support the "Format Control Document" logic as it is used for File INBOUND.

    Please create a support message to prioritize the alignment of File Inbound logic with the GetFile atom logic.

    Best regards


    P.S.: the documentation for the GetFile atom in general can be found in Online Help under search tag "Download File (Read) Atom".
