1 > extracting data only from latest available file (since days wise flat file are generated on remote location).

Data conversion as per requirement.

2 > converting html to txt file / directly extracting data from html file from remote location.

Hi Sachin,

Use get_file_attribute() function to extract data from latest available file.

syntax :- get_file_attribute('//order', 'date_created') . Write conditions using this function in a script and extract data from latest file.
