Toad Data Point 3.2 Automation Copy File

I noticed that when I save the automation script in 3.2 the copy file name I specified gets erased. I’m using a wildcard in the source file name. Specifying the same folder name as the source for the copy to folder (maybe that’s not necessary?). Have a copy name specified that’s different than the source. I have both the overwrite file & delete source file checked.

Thanks!

Yes, this is by design. The target file name is created based on the source file name if you use a wildcard.

I was able to rework my solution but I could see the need to want to be able to rename something that is date stamped. Thanks! -Jason

I use the automation activity run program and call a batch file (.bat - the old DOS method). In the batch file I can pass in the parameters from the arugment line of the run program activity and build any kind of copy or move command that I like. The file does not have to exist prior to the compile time or be subject to any other issues with the Toad copy file activity.
