can anyone walk me through the steps a developer needs to take once a flat file is delivered from a Mainframes System to the Unix box(i mean the Box on which Powercenter is installed). do we read the flat file straight away by powercenter or do we do any checks to make sure that the flat file delivered is upto the standards? if we need to do any checks, please list them and let me know if there is any thing we can do in the powercenter?
to add up to the above question, do we have have any control over the name of the flat file? for example, if the file name contains the execution date in it, how do we grab that date in the file name? to make the file unique, the team is planning to have the date on the file name. but does having the date in the name really help us in any way to identify the file through powercenter?
