## My mapping cannot access the shared drive.

Hi All,

I have created one mapping which has to read all files from a particular folder. I am using tFileList_1 for the purpose.

When i am accesing the local filesystem on my desktop it works. But when i use the below direcory

\\ant.xyz.com\\Dept-as\\BLR\\GroupData\\INFC-DPM\\  it gives no error and mapping completes but does not load anything.

Starting job LOAD_LM_DPM1 at 10:28 27/11/2017.

[statistics] connecting to socket on port 3645
[statistics] connected
[trace] connecting to socket on port 5045

Job LOAD_LM_DPM1 ended at 10:28 27/11/2017. [exit code=0]

Thanks,

Tosif Khan

## Re: My mapping cannot access the shared drive.

Yes It's correct because while parsing escaping characters \\\\ is replaced by \\ and \\ is replaced by \ .

Hi

Try this..

1) Just check that option(Generate Error if no file found) in tFileList_ Component.

2) Check the Permission details on the directory for your account.

3) if you are able to reach the shared drive path through Run option in windows then only tfilelist will fetch files.

## Re: My mapping cannot access the shared drive.

Thank you for inputs.

1. This is the drive i can access from run

\\ant.xyz.com\Dept-as\BLR3\GroupData\INFC-DPM

but when i use the same path in tFileList i get following error:

invalid escape sequence (valid ones are \b \t \n \f \r \" \' \\ )

Thanks & Regards,
