Pick data in small batches



We have a requirement where we need to pick up only a few files (say 100) from a folder with many more files parked in it.

We intend to run a .bat file, which resides in the FTP server itself. The .bat file is supposed to rename the files to a particular name which will be picked up by a Sender File Channel.

We tried using the "Run Operating System Command before Message Processing" but of no avail.

We are using:

Transport Protocol : FTP

Mesage Protocol : File

From SDN, we came to know that we cannot run a batch program using the above option. Please confirm.

Also, please help us with some alternative design, if reqd.

(We are using PI 7.1)
