to pick these we have given file name as u201CSAP_OUT_*_INV.xmlu201D when ever given this XI is coming with no messges.

when ever file name is given as SAP_OUT_SZ22TXN066581_3*_INV.xml it XI has picked file from 300 to 399

    There is no restriction on number of files XI can pick me it looks like when you give SAP_OUT_ * INV.xml,XI picks up a file which has some errors and due to which it stops picking other files,could you please tell us what does message monitoring says when you give SAPOUT_ * _INV.xml.

    has happened to me in the past:)

      Check SAP Note 821267 - FAQ: XI 3.0 / PI 7.0/ PI 7.1 File Adapter.

      I guess point 8 might relate to your problem if the FTP adapter timeout occurs.

      check the note 849089 as well.

      Also check point 13 and 26.

    For Sender file adapter, did you check the use of Run Operating System Command Before Message Processing?

    If you want to automate the process , you could write a script on the sender side, where after putting the file , you can run this script using the above and it will get replicated to your intended recipients
