tFileInputDelimited throws a Java exception if the filename specified does not exist. This happens regardless of whether the Die on Error box is checked. I thought that if the Die on Error box was unchecked, no Java exception would occur. Instead, I would think it would just follow the path for On Component Error (which in my case simply is a tWarn to log a message). It appears to me that the Die On Error check box has no effect on the functioning of the component. See screen shots...

Hi SMaz, What's your operating System (Windows or Linux) ? In all cases you need to specify your filepath with / character. For example under Windows : C:/myfolder/myfile.txt Or under linux : /myfolder/myfile.txt Thanks. Best regards;
This questions is not about your OS Like for all others components, the Die On Error checkbox is only about flow errors Missing data sources (file, or db) is a big problem and is not releated to die on error. You can use a tFileList or tWaitForFile to work only if you file s available. Regards,
