    Extract MetaData from a Flat File

    Diane Royer Guru

      Is there any way for Informatica to look at the metadata for a flat file used as a source and see the date the file was last saved?

       

      I want to set up a process that I can schedule to run on a nightly basis.  However, the data is not always going to be updated every day.  So, I would like to add a filter to my process that will identify if the source file was last saved today.  If the source file was last saved today, then the data will be inserted into the target.  Otherwise, the process will have 0 results and nothing will be updated.  Is there a way to do that?
