File Event based scheduling

188 Views

Hi,

I have scheduled a report with events. There are two events one is File and another Schedule.

When a text file is placed in a folder, a file based event is triggered and the report is run.

On successful completion of the report, schedule based event is triggered which will call a program file which deletes the text file. The text file is placed in a BO server folder on a daily basis.

For the report schedule options under events, I have given the file based event to wait for and schedule based event to trigger on completion.

For the program file schedule options under events, I have given the schedule based event to wait for the successful completion

of the report. This file is to delete the text file.

But the schedule based event is not triggering the program file and due to this the text file is not deleted. And the next day the text file is overwritten, as that file was not deleted yesterday. Due to this overwriting the event is not triggered the next day.

I am using BO XI 3.1.

Could anyone share their knowledge as why the schedule based event is not triggering the program file to run?

Thank you.
