How to manipulate date format of %SI_DATE% in file name for WEBI-schedule

Hi,

Does someone knows if you can manipulate the notation of a date using the variable %SI_DATE% in the filename of a scheduled WEBI. The generated filename is now "yyyy-mm-dd". But I want it in the format "yyyymmdd". Is this possible ?

    There is not straightforward option in webi to change the custom format.You can try with some scripts to convert the naming convention of output file once BO placed the file in some shared area.After that run scripts to convert the file naming date format.

    • I was afraid of that. We are already searching in that direction, since we have to put a file on a FTP-server of a third party. And they request to do this with a filename in the mentionned dateformat.

      Nevertheless, thanks for your reply !
