EDI HQ “How To”?
Using the File Name Operators

Sometimes it’s important to know the name of the file that was imported, whether the file is an EDI file or the file is an application data file. There may be file names that are available in the data itself or from other means. Once the file and filepath are known, you can extract or manipulate this data.
Usually the first operator used is “Replace With Import File Name.” This operator replaces the current expression in the mapper/map designer with the file name the transaction was imported from. In the following examples, the full file path and file name are “C:\1EDI\EDI\ABCD_850_SDQ5.edi”.
Once a file path and file name have been loaded, the manipulation can begin based on your requirements. You can “Extract Drive Letter Of File Name” which returns only the drive letter, here “C:”.
Or “Extract Extension of File Name” to leave only the extension of the file, resulting in “edi”.
Likewise, you can “Extract File Name Portion of File Name” which returns the full file name minus all the path information. Here the result is “ABCD_850_SDQ5.edi”.
If the path portion is what is needed you can “Extract Path Portion Of File Name.” The path in the example is “C:\1EDI\EDI”.
“Extract Stem Name Of File Name” extracts the file name minus the file extension. Returned is “ABCD_850_SDQ5.edi”.
You can also “Replace File Name Extension.” You’ll need to provide the new extension. In this example “.txt” is entered.
The result is that the file extension “.edi” is now “.txt”.
These file name operators are available for use when manipulating the file path/name is needed.
