Limit iteration on tfilelist



I have a tfile list component that get files from an ftp directory which contains hundreds files. But i want only one file (the most recent), it is possible to limit the number of iteration of my tfilelist  to only one, instead of hundreds?


Thank you for your support

Re: Limit iteration on tfilelist

If you select "Order by - Modified date descending" in your tFileList component, then you can then use a tSampleRow to get the first record returned which will be the most recent file.

The previous answer is wrong,


I had a similar problem and found a trick,

tFilelist ---- Iterate ---- tJava (nothing or logs) ---- Run if (((Integer)globalMap.get("tFileList_1_NB_FILE")) == 1) ----- tFileCopy

For other files, the tFileCopy is ignored.


If this helps somebody..
