    Q&A 41: Merge Multiple Input Files Into a Single Output File

    Q: Merge Multiple Input Files Into a Single Output File. We have a new requirement where we have multiple input files , but when this info is moved to the target server, then it should be combined into one single file – named for example… ‘ELEC_WHT_PRICESHEET.CSV’. Is there a way to combine all the input files into one output file?

    A: With WIN as Destination we have a File option: ‘Append if file exists’. The trick is to use the file rename option to rename the source files you want to append to the same destination filename.

    Destination File Rename option:

    I have a load of FTP sites that customer upload to, difficult to manage

    Q: Have a request. I have a load of FTP sites that customer upload to and currently we have a Limagito move on each of those folders – we now have too many of them to manage. Am trying to cut these down to one move per group of users.

    So, if a file arrives in a folder ABCD the move will pick it up, report to the user that a file has arrived and place it in their User folders with an append to the name telling them that it arrive in folder ABCD. So customer called ABCD has uploaded a file named ‘my files to you’ to their folder called ABCD. The file(s) are picked up and moved to a new folder with and rename ‘ABCD-my files to you’. Pretty sure this is possible here. But have had bit of play around with it but its defeating me!!!

    A: So the FTP server has a root folder with 1 subfolder for each customer like

    D:\Root\CustomerA
    D:\Root\CustomerB
    D:\Root\CustomerC
    Limagito will scan D:\Root and will pickup files from subfolder CustomerA and move them to another folder with the prefix of CustomerA-filename.pdf
    Limagito will scan D:\Root and will pickup files from subfolder CustomerB and move them to another folder with the prefix of CustomerB-filename.pdf

    1.Please add the following ‘On Destination’ Pascal Script:
    LimagitoX File Mover Pascal Script

    Begin
      psExitCode:= 1;
      // ... add your code here
      psVSA := psStringReplace(psFilePath, psSourcePath, '');
      psVSA := psStringReplace(psVSA, '\', '');
    End.

    2. Add the following Destination File Renaming:

    Limagito File Mover File Renaming option
    Limagito File Mover File Renaming setup

    Q&A 40: Is it possible to create a file timestamp monitor job

    Q: Is it possible to create a file timestamp monitor job. I mean, is there a way to setup a job that states that if there has not been a file with a timestamp of less than say 2 hours to send an alarm?

    A: Yes this is possible. We added some screenshots to get you started.

    • Be sure the Function is set to ‘Copy Files’ (which is default).

    Limagito File Mover Function Setup

    • Please add the directory you want to monitor as WIN Source. In our example we’ll use ‘C:\Test\In\’.

    Limagito File Mover Source Selection

    • We are going to monitor .pdf files in this example so we added  *.pdf  as Filename Include Filter.

    Limagito File Mover Filename Filter Setup

    • Our goal is to check if there are files available younger than 2 hours:

    • As Destination we added a simple Pascal Script to give us some information:

    Limagito File Mover Destination Selection

    Begin
      psExitCode:= 1;
      // ... add your code here
      psLogWrite(1, '', 'File Found: ' + psFilePath + psFileName);
    End.

    Limagito File Mover Pascal Script

    • Next step is to setup the ‘On No File Found’ Rule Event:
      • Enable ‘On No File Found’ Rule Event
      • Enable Mail
      • Setup Mail Message
      • Setup Common SMTP (Server which will send the Mail Message)

    Limagito File Mover Rule Events

      • Mail Message Setup

    Limagito File Mover Email Setup

      • Setup Common SMTP (Server which will send the Mail Message). We are using the Google SMTP to send the Mail Message.

    Limagito File Mover SMTP Server Setup

    • We added a Pascal Script which will add information in the log when the event is triggered.
    Begin
      // ... add your code here
      psLogWrite(1, '', 'We did not find any file younger than 2 hours');
    End.

    Limagito File Mover Rule event Pascal Script

    • If you don’t want to send the email event ‘On No File Found’ with each scan then please enable ‘Error event Memory’ in the Options Tab. When this option is enable AND ‘No File Was Found’ then we’ll send the email only once. The ‘Error Event Memory’ will reset itself when a file was found again.

    • RunTime Log Result when no file younger than 2 hours was found:

    • Email Result when no file younger than 2 hours was found:
