How give an Incremental name for a file writer?


(roi booo) #1

When i save my data on a .txt i would like to add automatically the date in the name of my file like :

And the result could be :

test_13_07_2017.txt
or
test_13/07/2017.txt
etc…

Without passing by workflow, it is possible ? I don’t find a clue in documentation.

Thanks for your help.

Hi Roi,

you can achieve this by creating a shadow column (mask) with your desired expression (in this case expression that will return today’s date) and then adding it (name of the shadow column) to the name of the output file.

I will attach an example for you.
