Business Objects Data Integrator - Error 52008 using COBOL copybook Format

According to the Data Integrator Reference Guide, version 11.7.2 for Windows and Unix, pages 37-45 COBOL copybook file format, under the Data Access tab, you can enter a variable in the File Name field (page 40) for the data file but I was getting the error 52008 FTP could not transfer file <$Filename> from host <HOST>. If I change the variable $Filename to the value of the variable $Filename, I do not get the error and the data transfer is successful. Did I do something wrong in specifying the variable or DI actually does not support using variable in the File Name field for the FTP transfer?

Are there anyone using this feature with success and are willing to share the technique?

    You'll probably be better off posting here:

    [SAP Community Network Forums » Enterprise Information Management » Data Integration and Quality Management|


    I'm just going by the description of the forum but that looks better than this one(?):

    This forum is dedicated to topics related to Data Integration (Data Integrator, Data Federator, Text Analysis for Data Integrator, Rapid Marts, and Integration for PeopleSoft Enterprise), Data Quality (Data Quality and Data Insight), and Metadata Management.

    I'd move your thread but I do not have the rights to do this move...

    Good luck,
