I'm attempting to create a Dispatch Action to move a file to
afolder outside of PDMWE. No problem here, the difficulty
iswith the file name. I need to have unique file name for
eachfile/time a document is moved.
I have set up an Environment variable "TempFIleName"
toconstruct a string consisting of the current date and
time. In the first part of the dispatch I copy the file to the
newarea and give it the new name (I'm also a little confused
asto how to add the file extension dynamically. No position
functionin the syntax guide). The file name goes
inas 20070501102431 without a file extension for now.
The next step in the dispatch is to create a parameter
filecontaining my data for the external processes. This includes
thevalue of TempFileName. Using the same variable in two
placeswithin the dispatch I would expect it to have the same
value. This does not appear to be the case. The TempFileName
valueevaluates each time it is used. So the value in the
ParameterFile is slightly off, 20070502202435, for example.
Does anyone know how to have the variable evaluate
This is the current setting for the selected variable:
Type: Value of environment variable
Environment variable: CurrentTime(%%Y%%m%%d%%H%%M%%S)
