FTP Automation and Variables

Is it possible to use a variable inside the FTP Automation? I’m connecting to an FTP server with several hundred similarly-named files, but only want to download 1 specific file, whose name I can set with a variable. I tried to use a file mask in a Download operation and insert the variable there like #download_filename#, but it doesn’t work.

Suggestions?

Hi,

Unfortunately, right now ftp activity only supports variables for the files that are to be uploaded. I created a CR111052 that will track full variable support implementation in FTP activity.

Thanks,

Igor.
