File scenario: Writing to and reading from a folder - Conflict?



I am currently setting up a scenario, where IDocs are converted to a flat file structure and are written to a file (APPEND) in a certain directory on a I5 (Iseries) platform. There are up to 10 IDocs every day. Once a day, always at the same time, a third-party FTP software reads the content of this file, sends it to an external party and makes the file empty again.

Will there be a problem when at the same time XI and the third party application access the flatfile? If yes, what do you suggest to prevent conflicts?

Thanks in advance.
