Getting Started with

Using a File Destination

  1. Click on the Target tab of an Integration.
  2. Select Export to File as the Target.
  1. If we want to send the file to an FTP Server, then we will need to select our FTP connector (which would need to be setup in the Connections) for the FTP Destination and select the FTP Path.
  2. Otherwise, if the FTP Destination is left blank, the integration will output a local file.
  3. Enter the File Name
  4. Enter the File Type, either Excel or Text file.
  5. If we selected Text File, then select a Column Separator. The options are Csv, Tab, Pipe, or Custom Delimited. Enter the Custom delimiter in the text box next to the Column Separator.
  6. Select the Character Set, either ANSI or OEM.
  7. Select which options you would like to add to your file.
  8. Include Headings – This option will include the headings from our source file in the exported file.
  9. Overwrite file – The option will overwrite any file given the same file name.
  10. Append date/time – The option will add the date/time to the exported file name.
  11. Separate file per key field – This option will create a separate file for each key field in the source.
  12. Append key field to filename – This option will only become available if the “Separate file per key field” option is selected. It will append the key field to the file name.
  13. Enclose column values in quotes (“”) – This option will enclose each data value in quotes in the exported file, not including the file headers.
