File Naming in MDM

Is it possible to define the name format in MDM. Does 7.1 allow us to decide what the name of the syndicated file can be?

    Hi,

    I guess ur talking about file format in MDM!!!!

    You can export records from MDM in .txt and xml format only. During syndication MDM asks you to mention the file format.Also You need to make syndication maps to export records.

    Also using file>export in data manager you can export records from main table or any lookup table in excel, access and text format to your system location.

    Hope this answers your question.

      Hi

      I dont think this is possible in MDM 5.5

      All files syndicated from MDM will have a default name Data_xxx_date_timestamp.

      Normally we differentiate between different files based on the port name. Separate Ports are defined for syndicating different tables.

      Further changes in the file name can be done in XI.

      Not sure if this has been supported in MDM 7.1

      best regards

      Ravi

    Hi Aditya,

    As far as i know, you cannot create your naming convention for an auto syndicated file from MDM to port. The naming convention will automatically take"date:time:file number sequence:xxxxxxxx". Lets wait for other's comments.

    Regards,

      Please explain the scenario why you want the file name to be renamed.

      If you want this file to go to other system, then you can run a batch file that renames this file in the format the other system wants.

      Regards.
