My company send hundreds of reports to our customers on a daily basis. When trying to schedule this within ConnectDirect we found we were unable to set the filename mask to use a date other then today.
All of our reports are dated yesterday, as they contain report data for yesterday. (daily_report_YYYYMMDD where YYYYMMDD = SYSDATE-1). There seems to be no option to allow for this within ConnectDirect at present.
The only option we've been given is to write our own scripts to schedule this. The ability to parameterise the date used by %SUBDATE would mean that we can set everything up in one place, rather than rely on multiple scripts and Scheduled Tasks to transmit our reports.
What is your industry?
How will this idea be used?
On a daily basis, we send out hundreds of reports. They are all dated with the date that the report covers. So each morning we send reports dated daily_report_YYYYMMDD.txt where YYYYMMDD is yesterday (SYSDATE -1).
This seems like a feature/facility that a file transfer utility should have, just a parameter that can be set and used when calculating %SUBDATE.
