How to get imported file name

Mike asked 10 years ago
I have a SmartConnect map that is defined as using the Folder Data Source and I am trying to figure out how to get the file name of the file that is being processed in the pre map event.  What I have found requires the file name to be in the file.  What I'm trying to use is the actual file name that is being imported.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Hi Mike

SmartConnect loads all records from all files into one big data table then processes the records. So it wont be able to tell you what file is currently running.

You can get all the file names in the folder by using something like this:

But this still won't help in telling you which file is running at that point.
