I am working on a project that takes in CSV files generated in LINUX. These files generated in LINUX have formatting where the record/row separator is a line feed, which doesn't match our requirement. Hence I am reading these files again through GoAnyWhere Director and while writing them I change the formatting to CarriageReturn + LineFeed so that these can be picked up by the next job without throwing any error.

Although I am successful in doing so, the only challenge I am facing is that of preserving the file name. Is there any way I could use the original file name while writing these files?

The following is what I have till now :
Code: Select all
<project name="readCSV_WriteCSV" mainModule="Main" version="2.0">

	<module name="Main">

		<createWorkspace version="1.0" />

		<setVariable label="Init:  FTPError" name="FTPError" value="0" version="2.0" />

		<ftps label="Source" resourceId="ftps test" outputSessionId="Src_SessionID" version="1.0" logLevel="debug" onError="setVariable:FTPError=1">
			<get label="Get all files from folder" destinationDir="${system.job.workspace}" whenFileExists="skip" destinationFilesVariable="Loc_files" numFilesDownloadedVariable="NoFiles" processedSourceFilesVariable="Rmt_files">
				<fileset dir="/trial/" recursive="false" />

		<readCSV outputRowSetVariable="csvRow" fieldDelimiter="comma" skipFirstRow="false" recordDelimiter="LF" textQualifier="none" processedInputFilesVariable="processedFiles" version="1.0" logLevel="debug" onError="continue">
			<fileset dir="${system.job.workspace}" recursive="false" />

		<writeCSV inputRowSetVariable="${csvRow}" outputFile="resource:smb://Alpha//COMPANYNAME_status_${CurrentDate()}.csv" whenFileExists="rename" fieldDelimiter="comma" includeHeadings="false" recordDelimiter="CRLF" textQualifier="none" version="1.0" logLevel="debug" onError="continue" />

		<deleteWorkspace version="1.0" />

		<exitProject version="1.0" />

Try doing the following (in pseudo terms)

Your FTPS Get for a FileSet value indicates that you can expect Multiple files to be downloaded. You must treat it as such... I would treat these files individually (even if I'm only expecting 1 file)
Code: Select all
FTPS | Get *
   From /trial/
   To Workspace
   DestFileVar = Loc_Files

ForEach ${Loc_Files} / ThisFile

      SourceFilesVariable = ${NewLocFile}
      DestinationDir = "resource:smb://Alpha"

In this instance ... ${ThisFile:name} will give you the original file name
