I am trying to read the trace log file and pick the time-stamp in the logs using a BODI ETL job. So in my EYL script I am trying to use the get_file_attribute function around the trace log file path but I am not sure on which attribute to be called.

$FileAtt = get_file_attribute($TraceFile,'??');

- I want to know what to fill inside the question mark since the file does not have any columns defined.

Can someone point me towards a turoial or syntax for this function?

Now if I want to find the date_created for this file, change the datatype of variable from double to datetime.

Upon executing the job,

Hope it helps! :)
